Birders who Blog, Tweet and Chirp outing.
We started our outing at Lowry Nature Center, Carver Park meeting at 8am.
Lynne, besides planning the day for us, had Coffee and goodies awaiting us in the parking lot to start the day. How awesome is she!
Ruthie brought home made Zucchini bread, and it was yummy! Thanks Ruthie!
I don't know what time we actually started birding…as we took a good amount of time chatting and getting to know each other more.
We came to Carver to meet up with Rodger of Minnesota Birdnerd, who was doing some morning banding. It was a fairly slow morning for them because of winds,and warmth. We didn't see any of the bird banding,but did go to the indoor classroom to learn a bit more about banding.
One thing that I really love about these outings is that we are not all consumed about finding birds, Yes do want to see birds, but chatting and learning from each other takes center stage.
Thanks Richard and Mike for the Camera help.. I have yet to read my manual:)
Its was really great to be around others with similar interests and passions.
Ruthie seemed to like handling them as well
We did didn't we? :)
We had a very nice morning together!
From here we went our for lunch…
Stay tuned for part 3
