Ingrid and I are approaching our 10th anniversary. Her youngest daughter just had a beautiful baby boy. Last month we spent two weeks in Europe and we are both comfortably retired.
One would think everything is great . . . except today she photographed a rare Hudsonian Godwit as it paused to feed in Portland. Her 290th Maine bird of the year . . . now she’s only one bird behind me.
Why wasn’t I birding with her you ask?
I was home painting the living room!!!!
In the old days, I would be chasing birds while Ingrid was working. I’m not sure I like our new reality!!!
Regardless . . . she took an amazing video of this shorebird as it paused on its fall migration from the Arctic to its winter home in Chile and Argentina.
