Debbi took the picture. Mitch also joined us,however, he had to leave before
we took the picture.
Finally, I can report back on the field trip to Debbi's home. We had
a wonderful time meeting together and birdwatching on Debbi's property.
She and her husband live in a paradise. It is no small task getting to
their home as they live app. 2 miles down an all but two track road. I
think the highlight of the bird outing was the opportunity to view a Bluebird
couple and their nesting sight in an old stump not 3 feet off the ground.
It was the first time I'd seen Bluebirds nesting in a "natural" housing.
Thank you so very much Debbi for having us over. It was a very pleasant
day. Here's a listing of our sightings :
Yellow Rumped Warbler
Black and White Warbler
Great Crested Flycatcher
R. W. Blackbirds
Geat Blue Heron

My place of 11 acres is with pond, cedar swamp, highlands, and some hardwood
growth. Excellent habitat for birds. Presently wood ducks in pond, green
herons, and usual flow of paserines. Indigos, Rose Breasted Grossmans (story
later),..will stay tuned.
