I’m not the biggest fan of business travel . . . in fact I hate it. One is cramped into small planes, cookie cutter hotels and far from loved ones. Over the years, my job has had me on the road a lot . . . and I’ve learned to grin and bear it. Since I’ve become a birder, I’ve tried to squeeze one or two outings into every trip . . . and in the evenings, I email Ingrid my photos . . . and we talk about my sightings. A nice way to close the gaps.
We have lots of Great Blue Herons around our house in Maine, but Columbia has even more (last year I saw two alligators stalking one).
Other highlights included . . . a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Brown Thrasher and Indigo Bunting
