Went birding with friends in Labagh Woods for a couple of early morning hours on Sunday. Judging from all the birdsong, the woods were full of activity. Had a very pleasant walk, saw lots, and generally just enjoyed the sound of all those birds singing their little hearts out. If I had that kind of great natural escape so close to home, I’d be tempted to start every day that way.
I added two new birds to my life list–the chestnut-sided warbler and the belted kingfisher.
Afterward, I had brunch with friends and their baby Henry, who I officially proclaim the Happiest Baby of 2005.
