How was your weekend? Hopefully lovely and relaxing! I wasn't able to travel far for the Memorial Day weekend, but I did get to do a little bit of hiking. Or well, walking on a gravel path, to be more honest. In a beautiful little spot in Madison, the Cherokee Marsh.
Partly I wanted to go because I've suddenly become some sort of amateur birdwatcher. Funny what a birdfeeder in the yard will do to a city girl. Who knew there were so many different little birds out there? So I packed up my little binoculars and my bird identification book and headed into the marsh. I did get to see a few new ones, including a House Wren, a Great Crested Flycatcher, a Yellow Warbler and a few Tree Swallows!
