Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

I've been thinking that with your stressful situation that birding might be how you get away both physically and mentally.

Nothing like a blue sky and a bird or several passing by to destress.

Soon you'll have everything packed up and be on your way back home. In the meantime, keep enjoying what nature has to offer.

Are you still there? What happened? I did not know swifts nested in houses like that! Amazing! Yes, birds have saved me from many a gloomy day. I'm so glad they are helping you!

Observing nature is soul-healing, no matter where you are. I'm glad the birding has helped you get through a difficult time. You've certainly seen a lot of unusual ones.

Those whistling ducks would have been lifers for me!
Your swifts look like they could possibly be purple martins (the females and sub-adults usually have the lighter colored tummies).
