Update

I haven’t posted my birds blog from our trip, but I haven’t forgotten. In the meantime, here are two bird photos from the back yard. The first one went on the Worst Bird Photos Facebook group and got 200 likes!  The other was posted on a different Bird photos Facebook group just so I could brag a little.  🙂

 

Speaking of birding, Gary and I got up early last Saturday and went to the sewer drying ponds in Arlington to look for shorebirds.  None were to be found because they sold all the sewer water to the golf courses.  😦  But we did see 34 other birds and we got home by noon, hot and sweaty.  Spent most of the rest of the day recovering.  Notice Gary using my new birding scope (thank you to David and Sarah!) under a big umbrella, trying to prevent sun stroke.

Cliff Swallow  –oops, turns out these are Cave Swallows (much less common)

Little Blue Heron

In other news, we are grateful that Rachel has started a second part time job and now is working for pay 5 hours each day, 5 days a week.  Still not full time, but a blessing for her to turn her volunteer job into a paying job.  This is an answer to prayer for our family, and both jobs seem to be a good fit for her.
