I really wanted to update one last time before out big move to Ireland. We are taking a small vacation in San Diego and attending a wedding before we head across the pond, as well as spending a few days in Pittsburgh to say by to our families.
As far as birding goes, I haven't had a chance to get out much. But I did buy myself a new spotting scope for Ireland and got to play with it a bit yesterday. I managed to see some new-to-me shorebirds, Semipalmated Plovers and Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers and some Western Sandpipers at the amazing Jackson Bottom Wetlands. I really regret not going there sooner, my kids would have loved it. Oh well, we may wind up back on Oregon in a few years, and if so, I'll be there often.
So, we've been super busy getting ready to leave and getting our fill of the American food that we'll be missing.
Thanks for reading this blog and I'll be sure to update it by the end of the month. That is if Ireland has the internet. (they do)
