Getting Ready

This may be the last post for a week unless we have Internet access in Belize so I wanted to just check in with a few tidbits.

First, I forgot to tell you about the woodpeckers.  In 2 consecutive days this week, I saw all of the common woodpeckers possible in our area:  Downy, Hairy, Red-bellied, Pileated, Flicker and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.

Second, the frost bitten Pelicans are ready to be released back to Chesapeake Bay this week according to Heidi at Tri-State Bird Rescue.  She told me that the water is warming up enough for the fish to come to the surface.  This is important for Pelicans as you know if you have ever seen them diving for food.  The Pelicans will be transported from Newark DE to the Chesapeake in a van, then transferred to a boat and taken out to some little island.  Pretty cool.

Third, we are off to Belize for a week. We will start in Ambergris Caye for snorkel/scuba/beach then off to Crystal Paradise Resort near San Ignacio.  We have been to Crystal Paradise a few years ago and loved it.

Anyway, I'll post if I get Internet access.  Stay tuned.
