All right! Ye old bird blog is back in action, folks! November and December can get pretty busy as Christmas approaches, and I?ve been scrambling around just like each of you. That said, I do apologize for the delay in posting something fresh. Just think of it as my way of considering you, my loyal readers, and not wanting to burden you with extra blog reading during this hectic time of year! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
So, as you can already tell from the first two pictures, our big backyard remodeling project has been extremely successful. We added some walls, Christmas decorations, and made it look generally similar to the inside of a bird store, and amazingly, all these cool raptors that are willing to fly right to your safely-gloved hand began showing up! It has been incredible!
Okay, okay, I can tell you are an educated bunch and these birds do appear rather tame and perhaps even injured. Could they all really have coincidentally arrived in our newly-remodeled backyard? And just who makes their backyard look like the inside of a Wild Birds Unlimited store? And why do those birds have bands and appear tethered to the gloved hands? Well, full disclosure?these are actually, and this may shock you, birds brought in by the American Wildlife Refuge to our local Wild Birds store for a very cool event this past Saturday. (That also means we didn?t re-do our backyard?)
Seriously, we had a great time at the Cary Wild Birds Unlimited on Kildaire Farm Road. Our whole family went, and we learned a ton about these beautiful birds. Steve Stone is the director of the American Wildlife Refuge located in Rolesville, NC, and his team did an outstanding job Saturday. If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of their shows, I highly recommend it! To learn more about some of their birds, click here. That?s all for today?back again soon! Dave
