After spending most of the past week feeling really crappy, I ended up having the most amazing day! Thursday morning I received a text from a birding friend that there were thousands of Snow Geese out in the black dirt region of our county. I felt pretty good and decided I'm not going to miss seeing that spectacle. I headed out there, what a glorious drive, a beautiful blue sky, warm sun, lots of hawks along the way including a male Kestrel. I arrived at the location, and there they were. Just incredible! I spent a couple hours out there, watching and talking to other birders. It was a wonderful soul filling time. Numbers were estimated to be around 4500 birds. Really quite something when they all took off and flew over my head!
Later on I took Monty for a nice walk around the pond at dusk. My heart and soul renewed and I am ready to carry on. I'm the lucky one, I've always known where to find my bliss, I need only look out my windows or open my door and go to the forest.
