What memories of the New River trip will I cherish the most? Birds, wildflowers, moths, efts, snails, rain, or even bear poop? Nope. It will be the memories of the people I traveled with, lived with, learned with, birded with, laughed with, cried with, fought with, and celebrated with during that whole glorious, crazy, wonderful week. People like these:


Wren (Jane)

Kathy B.



Beth and Lynne

Kathleen (with Helen, pointing out a bird)

Zick and TR


And others I don't have individual photos of. (Sorry)

The Flock's first night at the Farmhouse -
eating lasagne

and investigating our back yard.

Don't we look like a fun bunch?


Lynne said...

Kathi- You got such wonderful people pictures!

Hands down- you all were the BEST part of the trip and I miss you.

We DO look like a fun bunch!
Your candid shots are the best!
And, your lasagna was wonderful! (Not only does she bird, write, and photograph well--she cooks, too!)

May I borrow the dreamy-eyed photo of me looking at little bird?

The bestest bunch o' birders evah!

Susan Gets Native said...

Jeez, Kathi. I thought you LIKED me.
It was 7 am....was I drunk?????

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pic of rapt Nina!

Kyle said...

You certainly do, Kathi! And from all that I've read, it sounds like you guys had a blast! Even if Susan WAS drunk at 7 o'clock in the morning...

You not only LOOK like a fun bunch - you ARE a FUN bunch! I'm sure you will forever remember your week at New River! Great pictures, KatDoc!
I'm really sorry I didn't get to see the motorized mascara - that blows my mind :-)

Lynne: Wimpa, wimpa, wimpa.

Susan: I didn't get many photos of you, and in most of them, you had a beer in your hand. that one was from the first morning, and I think you were saying, "I got out of bed for this?"

Nina: I will send you that photo - I thought it really caught you at your dreamy best.


Kathiesbirds said...

Yes, we do and your photo is going up on my blog tomorrow!

I miss everyone already!

I don't know any of these people and yet I have read their blogs from time to time and know 'of' them. The pics-

Mary's eyes stand out in any pic. At least they do to me now ;)

Susan has to be one of the most devilishly fun looking people I've ever seen.

Laura has the sweetest smile.

I love the pic of Julie.

And Nina is simply beautiful. (She also strongly reminds me of the midwife who delivered my first son but her name is Nona!)
