Summer is the greatest time of year because even when not birding, it is the easiest time to be outside for many hours at a time. After a morning of birding I decided to spend the afternoon outside, writing and enjoying the mid-summer weather. One of the best things is to be able to browse the internet from the wireless router while enjoying bird sound, butterflies, and our forested backyard.
Summer is also a favorite time for our 1 year old Doberman-mix, Arizona.
Arizona is a native Illinoisan but was named after our favorite birding destination.
We presume he has greyhound in him because of his shape and the lightning speed.
We would highly recommend rescuing a Doberman – they are good-hearted, wonderful dogs that have gotten a bad name but are really just sweet, gentle creatures.
