Here Lies the Unknown Birder

Tuesday, July 17, 2007
During our "Joy of Birding" session at Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine, we took an afternoon side trip back on the mainland for some birding in a nearby village. The winding road from boat landing to village passes by an old cemetery. Standing guard on the cemetery's edge, facing the road, is a statue marking the grave of a Revolutionary War soldier.

Of course to us bird watchers, it looked like something completely different.

Looks like he's not getting enough eye relief with these binocs.

Did you stop and help him clean his lenses? Can't see nuthin' with dirty bins, you know.

{I learned that tip from a very wise birder once.}
