  1. Good ! - glad you were out birding, and with other birders - hate to think of birders spending their time in malls!! Safe travels!

  2. That group shot sure turned out nice. I'm still smiling thinking of that fun day.

  3. Nice photo! I'd forgotten we took that.

  4. I think it's great that you all got together!!

  5. Hi Dawn and Jeff,
    Just want to let you know that
    it was a delight to meet you two
    last Saturday, and want to wish
    you safe and productive travels.
    Do you ever check out state list-
    servs before getting there, just
    to see if any hot birds are to be
    seen? If you didn't already know,
    you can go to Jack Siler's site: and find any
    state you may be heading into.
    Happy trails......

  6. We enjoyed walking through the mall too and we did eat at a restaurant but didn't do any shopping, it is a HUGE mall! Glad you’re having fun birding and meeting up with your friends...

    Have Fun & Travel Safe

  7. Thanks for posting the 'gang' so we can all put faces with people we think we know. I am sure you all had a great time.

  13. Loved the group picture--looks like everyone smiled for the birdie!

  14. Hi Dawn,
    I just sat and smiled as I read this post and relived the memories of such a fun day.
    Can I copy the group photo to post in my FB album of blogging friends? (I'll make sure I say that it's actually your photo!)

  15. Such a friendly looking group of birders.-I like the magazine placement in the photo-pretty clever idea.
