Early punk gets the bird.

Today wasn't like every other day. I didn't commute to the city. My wife did. She had an appointment in T.O. today (Friday) so I had to work from home and watch the kids. The sitter arrived at 7, I dropped Rachel off at the train at 7:20. Nobody would be around the office until at least 9 so I went to a very productive local birding spot near the train station; and am I ever glad I did. I wasn't there long but got a couple good birds. Here's the new one's that bring my year total up to 113.

  1. Great post. We get quite a few of those Eastern Towhees around here (Cleveland, TN). To be colored so simply, they're gorgeous. Keep watchin'!
