Bosque del Apache birds

Bosque del Apache bird trip

Mike Lewis taught me something with his recent “Travel Diary” post. Instead of manually posting pictures and commentary of that big trip he made it into a PDF file and included a hot link to it.

Great idea. Had to try it. I learned that in Word you can build many pages of your story, doctor them and then save them as a PDF file. This eliminates manually inserting data that can get long winded and waste file space. Who knew?

I hope this works. Also hope my images don’t suffer too much from the compression.

Hot link to my Bosque story:

Happy Motoring

Hi Myron
Nice report and great bird pictures. We were out one day a couple weeks ago as the snowy owls are down in our country at this time. Did not see one but saw about 45 Bald Eagles below the local lowhead dam. They feed on winterkilled gizzard shad. Numerous raptors on our loop out to Fort Wayne last week including one Northern Harrier, a couple kestrels and about 25 red tail hawks. Had a male sharp shinned hawk at the feeder last week, he bounced a junco off the window and it was over quickly.

Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.

Very nice, Myron! I've heard about that wildlife refuge but I haven't been there. It looked like a cold trip, though.

Your fridge was working fine on propane? At those temperatures who needs propane.

Sounds like a nice little excursion and I like the way you presented it.
