  1. Yea you got your computer back! I like the B&W trying to take off.

  2. I am getting it back at nights from eight until my mom and dad go to bed…it is better then nothing however!

  3. I’m glad to see you back posting, too. Your pictures are wonderful and I love the Black and White Warbler, too. What a pretty bird! The Mourning Warbler picture has a beautiful luminescence about it. Very nice!

  4. J – these turned out awesome! Keep up the great work and the first shot is my favorite!

    Free as a bird,
    it’s the next best thing to be.
    Free as a bird.

    Home, home and dry,
    like a homing bird I’ll fly
    as a bird on wings.

    Whatever happened to
    the life that we once knew?
    Can we really live without each other?

    Where did we lose the touch
    that seemed to mean so much?
    It always made me feel so…

    Free as a bird,
    like the next best thing to be.

  8. Bethany

    Oh, by the way, nice picture of me in your flickr files…it really shows my good side. Just wait till I see you next! :-)

  9. You will forget about it unless you come up to CLDC or SWAT in the next month rather then waiting until July!

    oh, I never forget! Don’t forget owl banding too! I’m sure Tom will remind me as well :-)

  11. I think you will forget! I really don’t think you will be able to remebmber! You need to come back before July! I don’t think Tom will remind you, he will most likley forget as well! Alot of the times I am not there to do owls either . . . I think I was there to do like three or four last season!

  12. Bethany

    I can’t make it in June at all– :-( Well, we’ll schedule the owl thing together so I can make fun of you more. And I won’t forget :-)

  13. Cool photo of the Black-and-White Warbler.
