Here are a couple of the Meleagris gang at noontime today, browsing the weedy edges at West Campus, hopefully finding delicious ticks and beetles for lunch. (three male Wild Turkeys)
July really is a dead zone for birders. By which I mean it's more difficult to find birds, by which I mean you have to work a lot harder to find them...
Yeah, we've been pretty busy with projects at work, and just haven't made the time to get out and find the birds.
So here's the cumulative list for the past two weeks, June 27 through today, July 8th:
Northern Rough-winged Swallow
Looks like thirty-one species for our quiet two weeks.
Canada Thistle flowers, and...
Canada Thistle gone to seed - time for the goldfinches to be nesting!
Hope you're enjoying summer - the wonderful warm days of summer - my bones still hold the memory of the long cold winter now many months distant, so I'm loving these hot humid days!
