Weekend Trip: Birds & Marshfield

On Sunday we took a drive over to the Spring Green Preserve. We had a nice walk with the girls and I got quite the workout walking up this hill. The weather was nearly perfect with almost 70 degrees and a good wind. The birding was great also. Not only did we see a handful of bird species for the first time ever, we were also fortunate enough to got some pictures of them. At Spring Green Preserve we saw Lark Sparrows, Vesper Sparrows, a Short-billed Dowitcher, and Wilson's Phalaropes for the first time. Taking pictures of anything else Christine also took pictures of Turkey Vultures, Field Sparrows. Savannah Sparrows and Lesser Yellowlegs.

After birding on Sunday we drove north to Marshfield. We met with a banker and realtor, talking through our options for housing. We are both very excited about the upcoming change in our life which hopefully will include being home owners. At this point we are still looking into all of our options and expect another trip in the upcoming weeks to look at more houses.
