After attending the NCIOS (Rockford Bird Club) meeting on Thursday I decided to find a couple old photos of how Birdfreak truly began.
This is a picture of Veery (Jennie) at age 10 or less. We are bird banding and this is a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Apparently, the banders did not want to get chomped on by that awesome beak.
This is the Birdfreak at age 5 or 6. I was a geek than and still am. Oh well! I also don’t like the Brewers and am a Cardinals fan (big surprise!)
Can anyone ID the bird I’m holding? The picture isn’t too great, but give it a try!
Here’s a closer look.
