Dear Sherry,Mr P and I often look at the moon together. It holds fascination for both of us. You help me understand.Your journey will be wonderful. Your studies make me feel excited. I am sure you will see all you dream of and more.I will walk with you.One chocolate a day is good. We are linked....I do the same. I am a chocoholic but realise I need to control my temptation. I manage most days. The new bird in your garden is lovely....not unlike our yellowhammer.....Happy Friday....I have the parents coming to take tea this afternoon.
Sherry, I am so excited about your trip. I want to go to the Grand Canyon so bad. A friend of mine is from Germany and he thinks the Tetons are the most beautiful mountains. He isn't the only one. Almost everyone Ihave talked to that have seen them says the same thing. I can't wait to see them through your eyes. Your female Summer Tananger photo is marvelous. They rarely sit still down low for a photo. Maybe you should get Sibley's Western Guide to pare down the birds you have to go through to find the one you are seeing on your trip? It might be helpful. Anyway, it looks like you are well prepared for the trip.
Life is oh so worth living just for all the learnings alone!!! How much more you will appreciate your travels, with all the preparations you have made. Bon Voyage!
I can't wait to read about your travels and what you see, do, and learn along the way. I've always wanted to 'go west'. Have never made it past Colorado.. yet. Love the bird photos - I've seen both of those in and around our yard at different times. The yellow one I never could identify. Thanks for your input on the baby owl. I think we won't have a definite i.d. unless we see the parents well enough. It seems most 'owl spotters' think he/she is a Spotted or Barred. Now I'm completely obsessed with owls.. must learn more :) Enjoy your weekend! -Tammy
I envy your going to Yellowstone. It's such a spectacular place.
I just had my Sibley's book looking up the bird that scared me on my evening walk. I knew it wasn't a bat...too big. It must have been about a dozen Nighthawks! They sure scared me! Love your post! How fun to be preparing for a trip! Enjoy your weekend! ♥
