Yes the cardinal sin! How could I do such a thing.. We were going birding after all.
Jeff brought the scope and the little digasscoping attachment he made.
But I failed to bring my little point and shoot that is literally attached to my hip every day!
Thank goodness Jeff remembered his camera...and though it didn't fit the attachment..he was able to get a few photos of what we and another large group of birders say is a
you can convince us otherwise.
This birdie from what I have read is not common in this area. We saw it with two snow geese, who were much bigger that little Ross...but that photo did not come out!
What do you think?
Jeff and I drove the 9 mile Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refugee
This was not the only good birdie we saw...but it was a Life bird for us and a rare bird ..I think for this area.
Lots of ducks I have no pictures of...lots of egrets and herons I have no pictures of...
My favorite reddish egret was doing its dancing fool walk....and I have no video of that!
I am madder than a Hatter...as my mother would say.
So I wont go into detail of all the birdies we saw and I didn't photograph because I will just cry..but the good thing is we are here for over a week.
I don't think I will leave home without it again!
The Spacecoast birding and wildlife festival starts Wednesday and we start at 5:45 for an early morning birdie walk...Yikes ...a deep freeze is coming this way and It might be a chilly 52...Ok I wont complain!
So Jeffy did manage to digascope with his point and shoot these lovely Roseate spoonbills.
I think they look like gangly guys with pink tights and tutus! Check out their outrageous bill......What do you think they look like?
Today I will be glued to the Television!!!!!
What a historic event!
I am so proud that we as a country voted for a man who is not white!
What high hopes I have for a man who I think is wonderful and enlightened and peaceful!
I know he has allot to overcome..but I have High hopes...high in the sky apple pie hopes!
What are you doing on this Historic Day?
