Not too much going on today. I went out for a bit this morning but not for any serious birding. I was feeling a bit guilty for not taking my dog out to run in a while so we went for a long walk in the woods.
Always though I have the camera with me and and as I was getting the dog settled in the car to come home, a large flock of 100+ Cedar Waxwings came in. Their yellow bellies reflected in the morning sun looking like a large pot of flying gold. Maybe this was the gold at the end of the rainbow?
After arriving home, the dog needed a bath, She had played in the creek followed by tromping through the field while still wet and was now coated with mud. Fun stuff. While I was getting everything together out on the deck there was a Goldfinch in a nearby tree singing its heart out. They are molting getting their summer gold so was this my gold at the end of the rainbow? I guess I just need to keep looking to find the real thing.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all.
