There have been very few birds around since that big Monday but recently, my friend Harvey found a Curlew Sandpiper at Forsythe (don't worry, I'm not going to give you another shorebird lesson). Curlew Sandpipers are supposed to be in Europe. Harvey regularly finds one in the spring but having one in our area in fall is really rare. Needless to say, I went to Forsythe before work the other day with Harvey to see the bird. This is the best shot I could get.

We saw this nasty looking Marsh Wren in the weeds along the road.
It was fun to watch them try to land on the wire. You can see how focused this bird is on that little wire.
A quick trip turned into a pretty long day.
