Dead Out There, Blah ๐Ÿ˜‘

It's the dog days of summer; I'm not seeing squat ๐Ÿ˜ข. It may not be squat, but it's very slow out there. I'm hoping to see some shorebirds soon. A friend saw a Solitary Sandpiper (Tringa solitaria) that might be a good sign. As for the rest of the outdoor world, it's still dry even after yesterday's rain, and the river is shallow; I watched a Great Blue walk across the river without touching its belly feathers ๐Ÿ˜ณ. The ordinarily wet squishy mud roads are almost completely dry. On the positive side, I saw the Whitehall Eagles together on the same branch next to their nest. Such an excellent site. I haven't seen them together for quite some time. Hopefully, they will be successful next year as neither of the two nests I watch had any young this year. I did discover a new pair, but not the nest, but I am slowly narrowing in on the location. I believe I will never find it because I don't have access via boat. I need to slow down a little; I've been flying high on all of the rattlesnake sightings this year; I'm looking down more than up. Herps are my passion, and when the season draws nearer to the end, it starts to sadden me. Some day I will be able live in a more herpy area
