Last week…Fellow tweeter Pat Bumstead aka @Patbumstead and I met for the first time. We had been reading each others tweets for sometime now and chatting via twitter. She knew that I was here in Vegas..and she and her husband were flying in from Canada to visit family. So we planned to meet up for a day of birding.
We started our birding day at Red Springs..not to far from where we are staying.
We then drove to Spring Mountain state park..
I wanted to take this off the wall and put in my bedroom. Birding is a bit slow here in the winter..but this Say’s Phoebe posed for us a few times.
Went to a wash in search of the Magpie Jay…Pat spotted this fence post decorated as a face Pat also spotted the moon rising….nice photo op. We then went to the town of Blue Diamond to look for the Magpie Jay again…
Pat made friends with a not so wild Burro…who she called Stevie
It was so nice to meet Pat ..my tweet buddy…and spend the day with her!
But all good days come to an end..
Until we meet again.
