The Bird Is The Word

It’s official. I have adopted a new hobby. I am formally announcing myself as a BIT (Birder In Training). I went on my first birding adventure this past Saturday, with the foremost expert on the subject, that I am aware of, as my guide, the preeminent Roger. Roger also introduced me to rock stacking and happens to be a very good friend.

We stopped at three locations and saw 33 species. Actually, Roger pointed out to me 33 species, I think only about a dozen of which I actually got a close enough look at to be able to identify a second time. I’ll be posting pictures of specific birds in other posts. Here are a few of the non-bird pictures I took while birding.
