I'm still alive!

Hey readers... I'm still alive. We're FINALLY checking out of the hotel today or tomorrow - over one month after checking in! The work on our house took WAY longer than expected due to some poor painting and re-work. Now, it's a battle with the insurance company and our condo association which is worse than staying in a hotel. In other news, Beth and I will be relaxing and birding in Cape May this weekend! Yeah! I hope to get a horrible photo of a Yellow-throated Warbler to share with everyone.

Glad that's all coming to an end for you. I hope you enjoy your weekend. Will Baby Belardo get Uncle Bill's Pancakes? (in utero)

Glad to hear you're getting to go back home!
Y-t Warbler: Jakes, just where the pines give way to the marsh....

I'm glad you finally got out of the hotel. Good luck with the insurance.

Glad you are back..and I look forward to some horrible photos of the Yellow throated warbler!
The word verification for this is

So go find your warbler by a river and take a horrible photo.
I look forward to your next warbler post.

Glad to hear that you'll be heading home. I don't envy your battle with ins and condo assoc - but you better believe I'm jealous of the weekend in Cape May. Maybe once you get that Yellow-throated Wah-bla, you can send him up MA way for me?

Good luck with your insurance and glad you're back at the condo and the blog.
Can I also request a terrible photo of a migrating Bearded Vulture over Cape May?

@Jochen - I will see what I can do! I have a beard lately. Does that count?

@Lynne - YES! I hope they have corn cakes.

@Rick - Yep, there or Belleplain.

Thanks everyone else!

Yikes...and I'm going to be in Cape May this weekend as well (with Daisy and non-birding friends). How weird is that?

Jochen said...

Well, if the photo shows you with a beard eating bleached bones or cracking a turtle open on a rock of the Cape May jetties, I'll consider it countable. Otherwise, it'll have to be Gypaetus barbatus live and in person.

Good news! I hope the Warbler pic will turn up good. I have no Warblers in my photo collection as they are tricky to get with digi-scoping.
