Back from the wild

I’ve been real quiet lately, and there’s a reason… the week before last I took a break. Then last week I was gonna get back to a routine, but I ended up going out only once. Life happened, things came up, I was going away both weekends before and after… that kind of thing.

I can’t complain though, this last weekend I went birdwatching and was able to identify three different birds that I consider difficult, and that I haven’t seen in over ten years. For those of you interested in the arts, they were grey plover (Pluvialis squatarola), bar-tailed godwit (Limosa lapponica) and red knot (Calidris canutus). In fact, the red knot I’ve never seen before. On top of that, I identified a female ruff (Calidris pugnax). Not a rare species around here, but she was alone. I’ve always sort of waited for a female to appear by herself, since she has a very inconspicuous appearance, and took a moment to identify without the company of males.

Tomorrow I’m going out, not for animal birds but sexy birds 🙂 My two new wingmen are planning on going as well. Butterflies in my stomach 🙂

  1. I actually had to Google those bird names to see if you were joking about them when you mentioned wingmen. Grey PLOWER and BARtailed godWIT 😀

    Anyway, good stuff man, just bumped to your blog today. Going for my first daygame attempt today and I’m feeling really anxious, but reading your stuff does feel somewhat nerve calming.
