Our last post was 5 days ago . . . and for those of you that follow this blog know that that is a long time. It’s not that we have been birding . . . Ingrid and I have probably been out a half dozen time but they have been short expeditions followed by family crises (relatives to the hospital); cars dying (I bought a new Subaru Crosstrac); and work demands (enough said).
But through it all we added eleven more first of the year birds.
Our planning is for three days at Saddleback . . . Boreal territory hopping to get a Canada Jay, Spruce Grouse and a Bicknell Thrush.
