I come from a family of word traveling 'birders'. My dad and mom Judy have even been to Antarctica! My sister Tick and I happen to also live near a birders paradise, the Greys Harbor National Wildlife Refuge. That's the good news...the bad news is that while a zillion or so shorebirds fly though each spring and fall we seem to have a way of missing them by just a few days. Darned if it didn't happen again this year!
So once again Dad and Mom Judy come north from Portland to join us for a day bird hunting. We arrive just in time for high tide which brings the birds to us.
Here comes Mom Judy
Can you say 'birdwatcher'?
Thats my dad!
Ah - ha ~~ there's those darn birds.
Dad and Mom Judy are a couple of well loved rare birds themselves!
Strike three... stay tuned for next year ... will those Schneiderbirds find the shorebirds after all or will it be another turkey day?
