Ethan and Ingrid’s 2024 Big Year (Week 27)

Ethan and Ingrid’s 2024 Big Year (Week 27)

A recap of the 27th week of our 48 State Big Year (2024). Well that headline is really a lie . . . it’s actually a review of a bird we saw in late May . . . a Willow Ptarmigan. This bird of the high arctic showed up all over the state of Maine before we finally saw it.

    Wow, thanks for this update and the story of the Willow ptarmigan. Quite a bird and an experience!

    How awesome to add that to your big year(lower 48) and to your Maine life list! What a thrill to get so close. Such a reminder that for bird life every day in nature can be life and death. Wonder if having white feathers can be a curse.
    I wonder about Boardman and his specific songs. Were they written for your blog?? It really adds a lot of interest as do the movie film clips. I wait anxiously for your next entry. Have fun!
    Thank you, Kathy
