So just before 10am I get a phone call in the middle of teaching...
"Dad, can I ditch school? There's a Golden-winged Warbler at Meadow Park."
"Do you want to keep having Christmas with both parents in one house? Wait until after school. I'll join you."
Man, that was a long 5 hours.
We got it thanks to a train of birders (Herb and Will).
What a beautiful warbler!
Nick, keep eating your Wheaties or doing whatever it is you're doing! You're killing it.
Cerulean Warbler next?
On another note, the Ferruginous Hawks are beginning to return to my Eucs.
