What a Great Weekend.....So Far

Well, no pictures yet, but Lynne and I are having a blast here at the Sax Zim Bog Festival of the Birds. Lynne is such a wonderful person and I hope all of you have the chance to meet her in person some day. It was great to check in at the festival and get a big ol' bear hug from Mike Hendrickson.....he did a fabulous job of this festival and promises it's only going to be bigger and better next year! We saw lots of good birds today: evening & pine grosbeaks, hoary & common redpolls, three-toed & black-backed woodpeckers, glaucous gulls, and A PORCUPINE!

So stay tuned.....pictures and the rest of the story when I get home tomorrow.

Sounds like you two are having a good time. You saw a real live porcupine, that would have been a first for me, and some neat birds, that would have been firsts also. Tomorrow is the end and then on to Debs [Sand Creek]. Have a safe trip home, weather might be an issue.

Okay, I know you're back. I suppose you're weeding through those hundreds and hundreds of photos. Or busy defrosting your fingers so you can type.

Anxiously awaiting...
