Event Update

If didn't choose to GOYB,  you missed an amazing walk out at the Vero Wastewater Treatment Wetlands. Lots of birds in breeding plumage. Heather, Ibrahim and I had a great 2 mile walk out there. Here's what you missed (click to enlarge):

 Lots of birds in the "mood" today. Here is a little blue heron with thoughts of loving on his mind (you can tell by the much brighter color on his bill.)
 This was an interesting scene - great egrets, an immature night heron, and a grackle. We went back and forth on the night heron, but David confirmed it.
A white ibis, also totally in the mood for loving. I am quite glad I don't turn colors every time that I'm in the mood.
 The same white ibis flying off.
 A momma, daddy and wittle bitty baby sandhill crane.
 I called this as a sora when I first saw it, then second guessed myself out of it. Then David confirmed that yes, it really was a sora. A cool bird, this picture doesn't do it justice.
We saw lots and lots and lots of marsh bunnies. This one was a poser.
A cattle egret. This is a simple little bird, but I just think they are too adorable. 

Now tell me, did you see ANYTHING like this while sitting on your couch today? I seriously doubt you did. Join us on our next outing and see more spectacular stuff!

I am on day 3 without sugar... Getting weaker by the minute... Trying not to go into the light...

Ok, it's not really that bad, but I have a headache and am really, really crabby.

A Challenge!

So, my trainer, I think in attempt to kill me, has challenged me to go sugar-free for 21 days starting today. It's been 12 hours, and I haven't killed anything yet, but the day is still young. Feel free to harass me and check up on me to keep me honest, I'm gonna need it! I will keep a tally on the front page of the blog where I keep the milage update. If you don't see an update,  you will know I have something to hide! :-)

Event Update: Sampson Island

If you didn't choose to GOYB this weekend, you missed some spectacular sights! Here's what you missed (click to enlarge pictures):

 Baby Great Horned Owls!
 The mama Great Horned Owl!
 An Osprey washing her feet...
... before returning to the nest...
to snuggle the baby Osprey!

It was an awesome day, I got to lead trips, meet lots of great people, and of course get some fresh air an exercise. Join me at my next event. Let me know if you have any suggestions, I'm always up for suggestions, as long as it is off my butt!
