A Visit to Washington DC
When we got home, there was a phone message from Barbara Mulligan on the Eastern Shore telling that her thirteen year old son Tommy had seen a Prothonotary Warbler today at Pocomoke Swamp (web photo). He had noticed that I didn't have it checked off on my spreadsheet and wanted to let me know. So I called him up and congratulated him on having one up on me for the year. An interesting aside is that he really learned to read from the collection of bird books from his grandfather. I told him to call me again if he found a bird I hadn't seen. Clearly we have an up-and-coming hotshot birder in the making.
I watched the opening night of Major League Baseball, but fell asleep before the Red Sox came back to beat the Yankees. Tomorrow the Cards open their season.
