You have to be mad .....

Today we spent several hours stumbling about in torrential rain at the Philipsburg bird sanctuary down near Lac Champlain as part of the orientation session for a breeding bird survey being conducted this summer. You have be mad, or British or be a birder, to enjoy this sort of thing but two Indigo Buntings, and angry Overbird and assorted other goodies culminating in an SSV (that's not an SUV but a "soul satisfying view") of a gorgeous Barred Owl and two large chicks sitting out on branches in the pouring rain just feet from us made it all worthwhile.
