Love them warblys!
They're always hiding waaaaaay back in the woods.
We spent four days last week at Flora-Quest in Shaunee State Forest in southern Ohio. Now you're asking yourself "Myself, why would Loopy go to a planty botany thing when he barely can find birds?" Well, plants don't move...and good friend Cheryl Harner knew I would get lost if we went warblying down there by ourselves. Smart lady. So we joined the crazy plant people.
This is just a quickie post because we found us a little life warbly! WOO-HOO!
Yep, that's a Kentucky Warbly thing singing his heart out.
We don't see them up north.
He didn't quite understand why we were so happy about seeing him.
He just stared a lot.
Special thanks have to go to our special friend Greg Miller for helping us find this little guy!
He's a magically talented bird guy!
Oh, and Jack Black pretended to be him in "The Big Year" too!
Greg's still funnier.
Oh, I almost forgot, Flora-Quest is about plants.
Here's a leaf. Enjoy.
I hope Cheryl Harner gets your sense of humor!ReplyDelete
I really like to watch for birds when I go to a new place.
Oh my, I almost feel like we are teaching an old dog new tricks! Loopy and Doodles do plants!ReplyDelete
See you CAN have fun with plant people- as we are really "rooted" in the basics!
...no wonder I didn't see you up at Magee! You were at Shawnee.....one of my favorite haunts. Did you get to meet Jenny Richards? She's the naturalist Matty and I volunteer with each summer. I think Rick and I might head over in a week or two. I want to see some of the Ceruleans again! Tell the Doodles I say hi! :-)ReplyDelete
