Gone for a week

This Common Yellowthroat was as full of song as ones who hadn't had an unfortunate encounter with a tail-snatcher.

I'm headed out to teach an Elderhostel for the week, and then to the Audubon Center of the North Woods for their great birding festival. They have well-known speakers, I'll be doing a workshop on beginning birding, and there will be some great field trips and bird banding. Last year we had a lot of exciting adventures, including searching hard for a singing Warbling Vireo who turned out to be singing away from inside his nest while he was incubating! We got lovely looks at Mourning Warblers and other fabulous breeding birds of the North Woods, and a splendid time. If you've got free time next week, why not join us?
