“I am Conservation”

Charlie Thurman loves feeding the birds in the backyard of his Cape Girardeau home. “My wife, June, and I both enjoy nature,” says Charlie. “What could be more pleasant and refreshing than watching the birds in our backyard go about their lives, busily providing food and shelter for themselves and their families?” Charlie maintains numerous feeders and houses in his backyard, including bluebird houses and a large collection of purple martin houses.—Photo by Cliff White
