The full report












The full report on the New River Birding and Nature Festival will have to wait a bit; for now there's just these couple images... of perfect roadside wildflowers, of rivers rushing across bared toes, of ghost towns nestled in the mountains, weathered barns along the way, of impossible to photograph birds, memories of twisty country roads, lush hillsides and scenic saw mills, the laughter of an impossible-to-imagine mix of friends, graffiti as art and, finally, a hug between two beloved Flock-mates for the sake of a little bird colored blue like the spring sky.

Great photos, Laura. Love the mill and that's a lovely shot of the tanager. It was so much fun spending time with all of you at the Farmhouse.

Really great photos, Laura! I love the railroad signal light. I didn't think to do that and now I'm going to have to go back there and get it, too. ;-) Can't wait to see more!

Like a trip to fish camp. Fish would be nice - but optional!
