ON THIS SUNDAY MORN I am back within the friendly confines of the Church O The Pines. It is a good feeling to return after a wonderful week guiding Road Scholars in SE Minnesota’s Bluff Country/Driftless Area. We call the trip Birds and Blossoms, as we haunt the woods, streams, and bottomlands of the great Mississippi flyway. On this particular outing we had some fine birders and photographers that captured some fabulous avian shots. Here are just a few—the first 5 by Andrew Waud, the final ones by Gary Dukes—as they and others documented some of the 84 species we observed.
After a week home, I and my co-leader Larry Dolphin will lead another group in the same area.
From the Church O the Pines, and the Driftless Area, Good Sabbath!
