A Slow Mover

The weather sure changed quick. From cold and chilly to warm and muggy. What happened to spring? It sure made us move a lot slower today.

I took the boys up to Bartow County to check the sod farm and a couple other places and what do you know, we finally got to see the American Golden Plover, which was a life first for all of us.

We also enjoyed seeing the Greater Yellowlegs, the Lesser Yellowlegs, Wilson’s Snipe, Red-Winged Blackbirds, Killdeer, Pectoral Sandpipers, and some Least Sandpipers.

The best view, however, was this snapping turtle whose head was bigger than my fist.


We won’t get a chance to do much birding this week, because I have several projects to get done, but I’m sure we’ll head somewhere next weekend.
