A Plethora of Painted Buntings

While my wife, son and extended family rested on a beach in North Carolina (Holden Beach, to be more specific), I went out birding. Here are some photos of just a few of the birds I observed.

And others, like a COMMON MOORHEN, a LAUGHING GULL and a WOOD STORK who both liked my jokes so much they laughed and laughed and laughed, a HOODED WARBLER and a pair of LEAST TERNS.Even the Squirrels looked strangely different.And tomorrow, I'll tell you all about the SWALLOW-TAILED KITE that Emery, Declan and I added to our life list (on the first day of our vacation).

Best,
Dan
