Bench Birding

We might have stumbled on a new favorite way to bird, ---- sitting on a bench.  It takes the strain off the hips, lower back, legs, and feet, plus sitting still seems to allow the birds to continue with their normal activity. We had the day off today and we went birding at Tou Velle State Park, which borders Denman Wildlife Area where we are volunteering. It was a great morning and we enjoyed walking along the Rouge River and were able to identifying 25 different species of birds.  Probably our favorite bird was the Acorn Woodpecker of which we saw eight.  (two are pictured below)
