Another Shot Of The Sharpie

This would have been a great pic, had the darn bird not decided at that very moment to fly away. At least here you can see the tail and overall size.

Birdies And Stuff

Isn't this little guy adorable? It's a Thick-billed Murre I spotted yesterday at Orient Point (where I took the icy pics that were posted a few days ago). This bird is a lifer for me. :-) He's already losing his winter white cheeks/throat, which kind of makes me sad. Unlike most people, I don't like the end of winter. All the arctic visitors go back home to breed and live their reclusive lives... where I can't watch and enjoy them. Spring migration is exciting, but my preference is definitely watching the wintering birds from the North.

I have a birding/nature journal linked at the right; it's much more interesting than this blog, that's for sure. Unless, for some bizarre reason, you're not into birds. If that's the case, I don't wanna know you.
