What would make me get up at 6:00 IN THE MORNING on a Saturday? Nothing but a fun outing with my hubby.
This past Saturday Josh and I visited a Water Treatment Facility at sunrise. I slept through most of the 45 minute drive but awoke to stunning beauty when we arrived.
Can you guess what we were doing there at this unearthly hour? Birding. Yup! Bird book in hand, we eagerly scanned the flocks of water fowl. Within an hour, we spotted eight new species of birds that we’ve never seen before. My pictures of the birds didn’t turn out that great, but it was fascinating to figure out the bird’s features and spot it in our birding book. Suddenly, a duck wasn’t just a duck.
Me: It has a black beak that’s long.
Josh: See the golden eye when the sun hits it?
Me: Wait, this one is completely black except for the tail!
Josh: Notice that those ducks are a lot smaller?
After about an hour and a half, we headed back home, satisfied.
