Work, birds, chocolate, laundry

My day in 4 words. Work. Birds. Chocolate. Laundry.

In that order. 🙂

Didn’t think I’d get to squeeze in some birding to day with end-of the semester grades due soon and lots of loose ends to tie up at work….. but I did!  And the little bit of birding I did do was quite productive.  Chestnut-sided Warbler in the yard, Olive-sided Flycatcher nearby and Common Nighthawks streaming in over Centennial Lake this eve.

Was hoping to add one– but I added a total of FIVE new species in all to Mom’s Big Year today with minimal effort (including Canada Warbler, Eastern Wood Peewee and Orchard Oriole).

And laundry!

My husband picked up the slack with the laundry while I was out birding.  He has declared that next year will be another Big Year for me.  Yup.  That’s right…

A Big Year of laundry!  😉 LOL!

But, I’m at 262 species so far.

I can taste 300 coming and….. I LIKE it!
