New River Festival, Day 1

Blogging from the Meadows House at Opossum Creek. Temps in the 80's; I didn't plan on this heat.

Bullet points: 30 species of birds so far, plus butterflies, dragonflies, deer, a snapping turtle, and many, many friends and fellow bloggers.

Bonus points if you can ID what we found in the creek behind our Farmhouse.

Red-spotted newts, breeding.

This trip is great, and it's only just begun!

There she goes again: mixing in the fauna with the, uh, aviaria. OK, I know that's not right. Anyway, if it's not flowers it's something else when she's s'posed ta be looking for BOIDIES.

Hope you're having a blast!

Wow! You found a newt! I've never seen a newt.

It is the "Birding and NATURE Festival." This is the "nature" part.


You were sorely missed, chica! Mucho gracias for the vino. We drank to your health (often.) You should live to be 1000 years old, LMAO.
