Hiatus over, four-month recap begins… (February 28, 2011)

As I write this, I am in Reno and have been avoiding this project for over four months. In that time, New York has become but a memory, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire were visited and fared well, we established a new domicile in the state of Arizona, and have most recently relocated to Nevada for an additional month of avian fieldwork. Many changes to report, but first, leaving New York:

Saying goodbye to Aubrey, my favorite Merlin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anne saying goodbye to Jez, the Harris's Hawk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anne saying bye to Gladys, who always tries to keep up grumpy appearances

 

 

 

 

I didn't really want to post this image, but it's the last I took with BW, and, sadly, might be the last photo ever taken of BW. Shortly after leaving New York, BW died.
