Daughter Lisa brought hers boys down for an outing this afternoon. We selected Jackson-Frazier Wetland for a hike/bird walk as the boardwalk loop there assures you of staying out of the mud. Everything about the plan worked great except for the weather. We were accosted by rain showers much of the time we on the loop, arriving back at the car entirely drenched. But, we had a good time spotting, identifying, and counting birds. The oldest grandson Will proved to have the sharpest eyes, and best memory. In all we counted 32 birds of 9 different species.
