Ferd and I did some birding at Muddy Creek Greenway. We saw some Indigo Buntings, male and female Common-yellowthroat Warblers and a Rough Green Snake. It was a great day!
I took this picture three days ago of the seven baby Titmice and since then there are only three left in the birdhouse!
Each morning at we drove through the fog over the New River Gorge Bridge to breakfast at 6 am. After breakfast, we loaded onto our bus for our birding trip. Total birds seen by the whole group for the week was 148 different species. Ferd and I saw 60 different kinds alone. Here are few birds that we saw.
Ferd and I spent a great few days at the New River Birding and Nature Festival last week!

I checked in on the baby Chickadees yesterday afternoon and there were only three left.
I checked again in the evening and they all fledged!
The baby Titmice have grown a little bit.
I have been away for five days at the New River Birding and Nature Festival. (I will be posting pictures from that.) Before I left, the Titmouse laid seven eggs. I got home today and peeked in on them. They hatched!
