I took Boomer to begin the next part of his journey.
A very nice family will foster him until he is adopted.
From what I hear, people are lined up to take him.
The things that are for the best, sometimes feel the worst.
We love you, Boomer.
Be a good boy...
Thank goodness Kathi (katdoc) asked me to go out to the gravel pits today. Otherwise I would have sat in the house with a blanket over my head.
I didn't get too many pictures, because we were too busy scoping the birds from a "legal" trail way, way far away.
The girls came with us, and they were surprisingly good.
Water birds today:
(* life bird for me)
American coots ( 100s of them)
Red-headed ducks* (Kathi and I weren't sure at first, but we saw them side-by-side with the canvasbacks, so we are sticking to that ID)
Hooded mergansers (We saw those, didn't we, Kathi?)
Thanks to Kathi, I have increased my life list by NINE, in just a few days.
Once again, I am off to read all of YOUR blogs, to lift my melancholy. I hope all of you are in funny moods.
