Just a quick note to let you all know I am taking the day to relax and unwind. After the events of this past week, I really need to take a day to decompress, get my bearings, and charge my batteries. Literally.
As most of you who frequent my site already know, I enjoy keeping track of our elected officials and writing about politics is one of my favorite things to do. But you might not know that I have two other passions. Photography and birding. I know I have mentioned a birding trip here and there, and I have posted a few photographs when we’ve seen some bird that’s really cool.
So, it should come as no suprise that I have added a birding category to the site, as well as a few really good birding links. All of you people who follow my political rants will have to put up with a few birding posts from time to time, and you birders will have to deal with those political rants in-between all of my birding stories.
Okay, that’s it for tonight, except… What the heck is that bird sitting on the bouy?
Click on the image to enlarge it. I can’t figure out if it’s a Double Crested Cormorant with weird white coloring or some other bird. Okay, so my newbie-ness of birding is showing, but I don’t care. I can’t learn if I don’t ask questions, now help me out. What is it?
