I had the good fortune to spend May13-16th in Pinehurst, NC with some very good friends on an awesome golf getaway weekend. I promised anyone scoring a birdie (one under par) a place on the ‘birdie’ blog. Well, between us we played 23 rounds of golf and managed two birdies – kudos to Tammy and Tina. The other type of birdies were in much more abundance…
Last Friday (16 May 2008), I found this Northern Mockingbird in Allegany State Park while traveling through the Quaker area. You might wonder “what’s the big deal in finding a mockingbird” ?? The truth is that these guys are not commonly found within Cattaraugus County and I would assume it is because of our hilly terrain. I will watch to see if this bird sticks around the area for a while but I assume the bird was just passing through the area!!
