Needless to say, Di and I sped over there. We saw another young woman who was also looking for the bird. No luck. No bird. We looked and looked and decided to drive further up the road. I found the bird with a fortunate turn of my head. What a beauty. The bird was perched on a dead branch about 30 yards off of the road. We couldn't have asked for a better view.
Deb, Jay and Brendan are at the shore with us this weekend. Brendan was signed up for a birding class with one of the premier birders and ID experts in the country - Richard Crossley. He had a good day with his mentor. We had a good day with alot of birds and a bonus hawk!
