Come to New River Come!


Come to New River come
Bring your camera, your bins and your buns
To go Birding by Butt,
by boat, or by what—
ever is going to be fun!




Well, it's official. I've bought my plane ticket and paid for my trip. I am actually going to the New River Birding and Nature Festival in Fayetteville West Virginia at the end of April. I have never been to a bird festival before in my life, so this will be a new experience for me. I am joining seven other bird bloggers whom I have yet to meet but I feel like most of them are friends already! We'll be birding and blogging away each day and laughing our butts off at night. It's not too late to join the flock. Just click on the link for information and I'll see you there!

I can't wait for the photographs of the bloggers and the fun they will be having. Oh...a couple of bird pictures would be nice as well.

Have a safe trip and a wonderful birding (and blogger buddy) time.

What a fun spring trip, especially that you are meeting up with other bird bloggers:)

That's cool that you're going to New River, Kathie. You'll be over in MY neck of the woods! My hubby and I camped in New River a couple of years ago - it's a beautiful place. One day maybe I will attend myself (too many other outings planned this year, though). Have TONS of fun!

Thanks for your well wishes everyone! Pray, hope, think and meditate on good weather, especially for flying! Nina has graciously offered to pick me up at the airport and give me a ride. I look forward to meeting so many of my blogging buddies and I'm also scared to death!

Heather, so sorry you can't join us this year. Perhaps next? It would be so nice to meet you too!

Starting to panic here - I'm not packed. I'll start making a list tomorrow :o/

LOL!

Hey Kathie. I've never been on a trip like this before, either. All new to me, too!
