Conditions were perfect, the light great, me in the bird blind, and there it was: the glorious PAINTED BUNTING. Numero uno on my wish list. BUT there was a problem and it's going to make me sound like a spoiled brat...it was an immature male! Now he's pretty too, don't get me wrong; however, I really had my heart set on a mature, adult male. Is that too much to ask? I waited in that sweltering bird blind for an hour. Since I was about to pass out, I had to give up, although I have not given up completely. I will be back!
No offense little man, you're cute as a button.
A shout-out today to my wonderful, caring, amazing husband: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I have downloaded "When I'm 64" by The Beatles on his phone just to remind him how old he is every time he gets a call, which is frequent. Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64? The answer is YES!!! I love you so much! (I can't believe I used to think 64 was elderly. My, how advancing through life changes our perspective as we go along.)
