Tales from a Birder

Tales from a Birder

8 notes

One of the best parts about working in Sarah P. Duke Gardens is the time I actually get to spend in the gardens themselves. The H.L. Blomquist Garden of Native Plants has its very own bird blind facing a set of feeders. One morning on my way into the office I stopped at the bird blind for ten minutes. Ten minutes, but at least eight different species of birds! I saw the Pine Warbler and White-breasted Nuthatch featured above, but also Carolina Chickadees, a Mourning Dove, Northern Cardinals, Tufted Titmice, American Robins, and one bird that flitted away before I could identify it. Sure, they’re birds I’ve all seen before. But there’s nothing quite like seeing so many species in such a small amount of time and watching them all interact with each other.
