Running on Empty

Sorry, friends, for the cobwebs gathering on the Bill of the Birds blog. Due to travel commitments, weather complications, spotty Internet access, and a surplus of sloth and inertia, I have not been able to post here for several days.

We're JUST back from the Ohio Ornithological Society's Owl Symposium in Oxford, Ohio and I have some stories and images to share about it. But not tonight...for I hear the siren song of my pillow calling me to stagger away from the light and into the loving caress of darkest night.

I'll leave you, for now, with a photo of some happy birders on our Saturday afternoon field trip to The Big Woods, a remnant patch of old-growth deciduous forest at Hueston Woods State Park. We were scoping a barred owl roosting in a tree cavity.

¡Hasta mañana amigos y amigas!
