Red-Bellied Woodpecker – Berry Good!
I am still in Indiana, although this was not as planned. Right now we should be in South Dakota, exploring the Badlands National Park and Custer State Park.
Our motorhome was scheduled June 8th for three weeks to complete warranty work. We are now in Week 7, and the manufacturer says two more weeks. We are frustrated to say the least. Two trip destinations canceled so far.
It’s been hot in Indiana along with the rest of the country, so birding has been limited. We’ve been bike riding, so stopping along a trail when you see a bird to photograph isn’t an easy task….they usually take flight with us coming at them!
I lucked out with this one at a break stop.
We all have stresses these days, so my husband and I are putting what we’re going through into perspective. We’re making do and staying safe. Hopefully, we are back on the road in a couple weeks to make our next reservation in Montana for a month’s stay. Montana’s been a retirement dream trip for us for a long time.
In the meantime, if I cannot find the birds here in Indiana, you’re likely to see more of my Florida birds from the past winter (I still have so many not shared!) or from home in the mid-Atlantic, or even possibly photos from our 2016 summer trip cross country. I’ve been reminiscing through them lately. 😊
