The first place I head on a Christmas Bird Count- is for the water. Sunrise, birds stir, and fresh water is their first business of the day. Usually, I am waiting for them, beside this little stream.
Fresh Water: a guaranteed morning bird magnet.
The definition of a true friend: the guy who offers to help me get them out of the water and onto terra firma where crows and coyotes can get busy composting them. And- yes. We did it! Somehow, in the life of an environmental activist- for once it feels good to see immediate results- something tangible for your sweat and struggles.
Next stop: Mansfield Lahm Airport and one of our resident Kestrels teed up in view of the radar tower.
Maybe it is better to share our water with those dead deer? At least I can see them on the surface and know my water has been fouled.
Fresh water and injections wells, learn more about them in this amazing film clip The Divide on the GMAS Website. Click on VIDEO. It will give you a whole new perspective on the importance of our water.
