The Bittern End...

May has been a good month for walking around the lake, but only ok for birds,although last friday, KT and I did spy for the very first time (ever for me I might add...) a least bittern!! It was in some grass, hunting at the edge, doing the Bittern thing...
It was a great looking bird, and a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be. I think this was a good bird for Hollingsworth. The walking/running aspect of our trips has been good. We have a blast, at least when you can see outside and there isn't a wildfire somewhere trying to ruin our day.

Thanks for the read!
KT is definately in love with Purple Gallinules... She calls them Purple agitas!

Spring has Come and Gone??

I have some birding results from April, but realy don't know what I should do with them. The computer nerd in me wants to construct a program to read the lists KT and I made and compile some uber-information for everyone to look at. I suppose that's valuable.... to a geek....
What about everyone else? I mean, Birding is all about data, biking is all about the process. We haven't been biking in a while though.

In April we did set a new specie record. I've been constructing a pretty good blog about our experiences for the month of April, which has been by far our most birdy month. My little girl turns 2 sunday coming, and shee's getting to the point where birding is part of a routine...

It's awesome to have your kid tell you they want to go see purple gallinules!

See you a little later, KT and I have some birding to do!
