3.11.16 - Bird Nerd Moment

I believe that most bird lovers do feel that birds are quite inspirational.  In fact, I discuss that very topic briefly in my presentation Birdwatching For Beginners.  Birds inspire, several forms of art, paintings, music, dance, sculpture... for starters.  I am fortunate to know a sweet family of, as they say, Beak Geeks, which I LOVE and hadn't heard before!  This wonderful bunch often sends me their own bird accounts via text and we get to share in the awe of being in the right place at the right time.  In their case, they've been able to see Bald Eagles soaring above their very own Mashpee yard!  CAN YOU IMAGINE?!  When someone DOESN'T get all cuckoo over a Bald Eagle sighting, I realize we probably won't be sharing cupcakes anytime soon.  Bald Eagles are a sight worth gasping, and even shedding tears over in these parts... for some of us.  This morning I happily discovered another happy text that included a photo of the Lego sculptures of birds they'd been working on... they even have names.  Please enjoy the photo below of their no doubt time staking work...
I LOVE IT when I am included on the share list when it comes to artwork, especially if it comes from Piper and Esme... and Kate.  Thank you Ladies of the Beak Geeks of Mashpee.  I cannot wait to see more... (double click photo to enlarge)

Happy Birding!
