Are You There?

Poor, poor little bird blog. So neglected due to teaching and life. It's work, work, work, work, work, weekend. Repeat. Sigh.

I have been out and about on the weekends. Though there's not a whole lot of time for photographing our feathered friends. Especially with a wedding in the family in two months.

Then there's the fact that the undeveloped neighborhood with the ponds that were frequented by some lovely birds is no longer undeveloped and mean people moved in and their rotten kids and dogs have run all the birds off.

But there is a nature trail behind the elementary school where I teach and I take the pup down there on weekends.

We see herons----

And an ibis or two sitting in the trees--

And the egrets who don't appreciate being photographed during breakfast---

There are gulls of the laughing sort---

And ducks---

And a creek--

And the occasional sunrise---
