The Inner Birder Post


Thanks to Pines Above Snow ( http://pinesabovesnow.blogspot.com/ )for wrapping me into this welcome mid-week distraction! So here is my first meme - my thoughts on birds in 6 words:

Twilight fog
Whistling wings
Safe harbor

I instantly thought of that - a really special morning in the Delaware marsh (2006, the day I took this picture), full of bird activity, and a truly horrible and awful duck hunt. The ducks couldn't see the decoys, and wanted no part of the little pothole (a wigeongrass flat) where I was sitting. But since I wasn't shooting up the marsh, shorebirds and ducks were moving through - right above the fog, right over my head....all I could hear were different types of wings moving through. They never stopped, all morning. When the fog lifted, it was amazing to see the diversity of birds sitting out on the open marsh....safe harbor.

So here are the "birdy" folks whose blogs I read regularly:

Swampthing
Ohio Nature Blog
Blue Ridge Blog

Sorry there's only 3...but a man can only blog so much. More this weekend!
