Of the 10 or so pictures I took in October, almost all of them are flags and NONE of them are birds. Obviously this last minute challenge is a dirty trick of the highest order, but I’m the kind of guy who turns lemons into something that resembles lemonade. So the way I saw it, between the time I discovered the challenge and the time I had to be home to hand out Halloween treats, I still had a good five hours to get out on my bike and find some birds.
Making things a little more difficult is the fact that most of the birds in Minnesota have headed south for the winter. And it sure feels like winter this morning. (29-degrees F) Oh well, the scarcity of birds and the cold air are just two more lemons for me to use in concocting some bird picture lemonade.
There were even fewer birds out there than I thought there would be. In fact (you might not believe this) I searched and searched and found the very last bird in all of Minnesota.
That’s my watery, lemonade-like substance for this challenge. Time to start searching for some November kids.
