83 Baby!

It's getting' bad, I am REALLY wanting to hit that 100 mark! To celebrate my forthcoming accomplishment, I even ordered myself a "100" pin! I really want to officially add this pin to some part of my birding gear!

This weekend I was able to add some pretty neat birds to my list... Chipping Sparrow, Black-throated Green Warbler, Pine Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, Blue-gray knatcatcher, and Tree Swallow.

The weather was cloudy but nice. Today, the local Amos Butler Audubon crew had a luncheon in memory of Bud Starling - whom which I never had the privilege to meet, however, the stories that were shared today made me feel like I have know him for years. It was nice to hear so many wonderful stories from so many people and how he impacted them in their hobby of birdwatching! No doubt Bud was a pioneer! I heard Warbler season was his favorite so it was nice that we were able to spot so many Warblers on the hike today - in his honor!
