A Birding We Will Go


Purple Finch in Spring by Andrew Thompson courtesy Tin Mountain Conservation Center


I am informed by above referenced TMCC there is an incredible "birding spot in interior New England" known as the Brownfield Bog. Birds such as this may be viewed on birding expeditions. Apparently required equipment is minimal: binocs, rubber boots (mud season) and a snack.

I am not going but I love the colorful look of this birdy so I posted it for pure pleasure.

Update!!! May 1st!!! Just found out this is the New Hampshire state bird. whaddyaknow?

I used to do a little birding when I was more active as a MNS ( Malaysian Nature Society) member. Just lent my old pair of bins to a friend who's first -timer.
Thanks for the pic.

Brian: GREAT response. You are too funny.

Keats: maybe some day I'll go...we do have binocs in the house. My husband would love to get a photo of a pretty bird like this.
