Happy Anniversary

Yes, that's right.  It's our wedding anniversary today, and I'm on the road and not in Norfolk with Joyce.  But I'm not too far away.  John and I are in Meridien MS with about 700 miles to go to reach Staunton, VA.  We think that's doable tomorrow, so my ETA for Norfolk is Thursday morning sometime.  It will be nice to be home after three weeks away.  The drive from Sinton TX didn't produce any new birds for us although the rice fields and the Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana were loaded with herons, egrets, ibis, and even a spoonbill.  In Mississippi it was clear we were back in the southeast with the habitat change to mixed pine-hardwoods.  John spotted a Red-headed Woodpecker in a cutover area as we whistled along.  We'll get an early start tomorrow.
