Back in the Saddle

Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Howdy Friends and Fellow Bird Watchers:

Apologies for the week-plus hiatus from posting here at Bill of the Birds. I've been away traveling, and my trusty laptop went back to Apple for some repairs. It was actually NICE not having to lug a laptop during my travels, and even nicer not having any reason to be online. It reminded me of what life (for all of us) was like prior to e-mail and the Web. Sometimes being out of touch is a good thing....

But if this ever happens again I'll need to arrange for a guest blogger to keep the mouse pad warm for me when I cannot (for whatever reason) post on Bill of the Birds.

It will take me a few days to get my you-know-what together. But like always, I promise to endeavor to persevere (one of my favorite lines from my favorite movie--can you guess which flick?).

Julie, Phoebe, Liam, and I spent most of last week at the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine. I've got lots to share about the experience at that wonderful place, but no time to do so now.

Instead, I'll leave you with an image that was the very first thing we saw of the camp as we arrived on Monday night, June 18 for the "Joy of Birding" session. Ahhhh!

That's Hog Island across the sunset-painted water of Muscongus Bay.

That view could not have been painted more beautifully

Kept coming back to see if anything new was here but I knew you had to be out birding and taking many photos! Welcome back Bill!

This was about 9:30 I think. We arrived later than expected after a great dinner in a nearby village at a place called the King Eider Pub.

You got it! That's my fave movie of all time.

Here's another good quote:

"Josey! Ain't we gonna bury them fellers you kilt?"

"Why, boy? Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms..."
