Birds

Lovely Sunday afternoon

It was so beautiful out today that after brunch with genevra & akdar I decided that I needed to take my gigantic lens and head out to the park. I went to the North Mississippi Regional Park.
I saw two new lifer birds!
A Yellow Warbler (Dendroica petechia)

8790

And a Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum)

8853

Despite all the other cool birds (and a camera shy woodchuck!) I eventually made it down to the shore right across from the heron rookery. Tons of Great Blue Herons (Ardea herodias), and there were babies!

I ♥ my huge lens!

Does this mean I'm a grownup now?

graduated?

Well, not quite yet. I'm done with all my classes. I've got my cap & gown.

All that's left now is to walk across that stage on Tuesday!!!

If any of y'all are interested in coming to the ceremony (and I certainly don't expect you to, after all, no one *really* likes going to those things!) the graduation ceremony will be held at Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota (84 Church Street S.E. in Minneapolis) at 7:00 p.m. on May 19, 2009.

It may only be a two year degree, but I've finally got a degree, dammit!!!!!!
