Chandler Day 132: Time to go Home

DSC03067I woke up this morning, after a night of rain, to this beautiful sunrise. I had a lot of fun camping and birding this weekend. I’ll definitely be coming back next May. I got up, listened to the Orioles, Yellow Warblers, and Blackbirds calling and started packing up so I could make the long drive back home. It was a lot of fun and I’ll miss the birds, but I’m ready to be back home in Indy.

Chandler Day 131: Lake Erie Coast

DSC03093Another day of birding and exploring the parks along Lake Erie. It’s beautiful up here and the birds are amazing. I got my first lifer of the trip, which was also a rarity for Ohio. That was White-faced Ibis.  I talked to some more neat people, saw a lot of good birds, walked along this beautiful beach and at the end of the day I picked up a few more species, which got me to 100 species total for the trip.
