I won't forget the first night Gus made us Lobster rolls! I had watched birders salivate while telling me their stories of Maine and their love for....lobster rolls. Now I understand better why they went crazy over the mention of Maine.

For me, birding is about great observations on new birds. It's also about getting better observations on older birds that I've previously seen. Sometimes the work is difficult but it's also very rewarding.

These days allowed for us to closely examine several already seen birds and their nesting habitats better. For example, we watched a Yellow Warbler family nest near the landing by Kathie's house.
There was a lot of great habitat around Kathie's house.
She had nesting Bald Eagles and a field full of Bobolinks!

I'd like to thank Kathie and Gus for a wonderful time. It's now time for me to reciprocate the love. She will need to come and visit in the spring of next year to Arizona so that I can help her find the LeConte's Thrasher and several others she needs for her list:) Life is short. It is to be enjoyed and explored. Our adventures continue back home in Arizona. Until next time Maine!
