Now that I'm working with birds for my "eight to five", well, my work day isn't exactly 8-5 anymore. This morning I was up at 2:30 am, out the door at 3:20, and headed to the office to be on the road at 4:00 for a northern bobwhite survey in Coshocton County. I didn't hear any bobwhites, but I was done with survey early enough to be back at home by 10:00 am. Not bad for a days work, but, it started really early.
That gave me plenty of time to catch up on sleep and take a few photographs of our nesting house wrens this afternoon. This is the third summer we've had a pair in a wren house since we've moved here almost two years ago. They're a great bird to photograph- constantly active, they don't move very far, and they're always doing interesting things.
