In this post I'm including my favorite "bird" photos, in no particular order. Before I finished this post, I thought the birds weren't as fun as the animals, but when I was done, after reliving these experiences, I realized these birds are beautiful, and I was really excited when I caught them on "film." I have enjoyed remembering them and where I was when I snapped their photos.
First the hummers:
And last, but certainly not least - remember this bird? We were at Utah Lake State Park in Provo, UT. Katie and I were taking a walk along the edge of the lake and saw this bird in distress. There was no one around to help, and I wasn't sure what to do, but I knew I couldn't walk away and leave him. I went into the water as close to him as I could get, and could hear him breathing. I finally pulled him in closer using the fishing line, got two rocks and sawed the line as close to him as I could get without freaking him out. It finally broke off and he flew away. I later talked to the Ranger at the Visitor's Center, and he said the bird would probably make it. The hooks tend to dissolve in their bodies. That was pretty exciting and I sure felt good when he flew away.
Thank you for remembering with me - I hope you enjoyed this walk down my avian memory lane.
