Today started out pretty crumby, one of those days when you kind of wish you never woke up, or at least never turned on your phone. However I ended up cracking and finally getting the lens I need for my birding expedition to Hitchcock Nature Center next week. And then…when I got home, I was still feeling a bit blue, then I looked up at the sky and saw it was full of raptors. Hawks, ospreys, kites, and my fav of late: nighthawks. Yeah! I walked around with my binoculars for a while, but I hardly needed them, the birds came so close. : ) Unfortunately my camera was not set up yet, but I am feeling very hopeful about Hitchcock.
