Great day

I had to break during the day for some other obligations, but an evening walk netted a scarlet tanager and a rose-breasted grosbeak.  My goal had been to find 20 species in my first Birdathon, but I was one short. (Can I count my neighbor's rooster?)  Still, all in all, it was a great day.  Saw many deer, a groundhog, several chitter-ly chipmunks.  Trilliums, mayapple blossoms, the first wild geraniums and so much more.  But where was that oriole I saw last week, and why did the blue jays evade me?  I did end my day with the same little guy I started it with - my little hummingbird friend playing king of the mountain on the feeder.  Maybe if I sit outside after CSI, I'll hear a barred owl........
