And we trudge on! With a week of photo challenge under my belt I come to day 8: My Sunday. Today was a busy day with Mother’s Day visiting, yard work, and grocery shopping. The morning started out with birding! I have volunteered for the 2nd Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas. My mission is to visit my assigned area (my block) for twenty hours between April and October for the next four years. Two of my visits have to be nocturnal visits. I’m on the lookout for birds and especially birds who are trying to or have already made a love connection! I have to keep my peepers open for singing males, birds collecting nesting materials, fledglings and other such suggestions that breeding is taking place in my block. Not to sound like a total nerd, but it is super exciting! Today I saw a pair of Northern Cardinals alerting their fledgling of my presence (score!) and a female Carolina Wren moving her fledglings along (double score!)
This is an almost enchanting path located in my block. I have high-fived myself numerous times that the owner of this property has granted me permission to bird here! Eeeeee! So much fun!
Tomorrow’s photo challenge : A sign!
