Birding this morning didn’t yield any incredible newly-arrived migrants, just the usual suspects, but the mist on the bog before the sun rose high enough to burn it off was gorgeous.
Also: two more naturalist acquaintances of mine have started nature blogs from their patches of the world, and you should check them out.
Tales From a Wandering Albatross is written by a woman I went to college with who is now an intern at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Florida. She double majored in zoology and English, and that English training really shows in her fantastic writing!
Maggi’s Kenyan Adventure is by someone I worked with the summer I was in Saskatchewan. She’s currently in Africa volunteering with a conservation organization, and I love that she doesn’t just accept everything the organization does at face value – her background in natural resources has given her the ability to think critically about whether what they’re doing makes sense.
Give them a try next time you’re looking for some new nature reading!
