#Birding ON THE ROAD

Birds sing after a storm. Why Shouldn’t WE?”-

Rose Kennedy

On June 1, 2021 I began my roadtrip from Lincoln, Nebraska to my hometown of Laurinburg, N.C to spend the summer with my parents and do some research at the N.C. Archives.

I stayed over in Paducah, KY and then over in Knoxville, TN. It rained the WHOLE WAY, (hence the quote).

But it was a good ride. As with all things I reflected on my son’s spirit, which I know is always near. I cried, I laughed, I spoke to loved ones over the phone as I drove and noticed all the winged messengers in the sky.

Following is a photo-essay of some of my bird friends along the ride…

Great Blue Heron at Loess Bluffs
From the land of the Great Plains to…
To the mountains of Appalachia
to the mossy, pine needle strewn forests
Forests of N.C.
Mason Farm Biological Preserve
What wonders will I see here??

“Why do birds sing in the morning? It’s the triumphant shout: ‘We got through another night!”
