My "friends" went birding without me again. They were out to see Rusty Blackbirds and maybe band some hawks. They went to Peabody WMA in Western Ky.. I was hoping they wouldn't see any RUBL and wouldn't get to band anything...and well, maybe a little bit that they would get a flat tire too. Now I feel kinda bad since they didn't see anything special but they did get to band an American Kestrel! At least they know that it is pointless to bird without me.
