Old Hemlock is such a gem. This morning I did my May bird count. I have
divided our 320 acres into ten quadrants and stay close the center of each
<>to record all birds
seen or heard in a three minute period. The bird list is below. I post some
scenes from this morning on my Facebook page . Although OH Mt. Laurel was
with me, she was always on the move and no photos taken. I have taught her
as I have Willow to come in and sit beside me when I am a bird watching. I
taught Willow come to a "bird pish" while I use binoculars.
