I got nothing.

I'm losing the will to chase.  A pile of nice birds showed up near Newport recently and I could not bring myself to make the drive, even when I had the day off and the weather was pleasant.  What does this mean about the future of my blog?   Does it mean I will start torturing you all with foggy backyard bird shots that you don't care about at all? 

Over forty Pine Siskins have been coming every damn morning, but I know you don't care

Does it mean I will turn to all bugs all the time??

Bold jumping spider

All dead or dying stuff all the time?

I put this dude to sleep in my freezer... 

Does it mean I will start posting all dog photos?

Jake's 10th birthday!!!!  Warrior Rock trail on Sauvie Island 

Does it mean I will quit birding finally and obsess over squirrels instead?

Does it mean...gasp...that I will no longer list??????
No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  I don't know what it means, but I promise it means none of those things.  Look!  An owl!  County bird 162 for the year.  See?  I still care. 

I think all that it means is that I will go back to finding my own birds for awhile.  It worked quite well the first couple years of birding, back when I stumbled upon things like an Ovenbird and Great-tailed Grackles, all because I was out exploring and birding on my own.  We'll see.  Stay tuned.  Good times.
