Whenever I got out on a walk or run I always go out the same way. Not because I have some weird OCD, it’s just where the path starts. I started noticing in the past couple of weeks a bird call. Yep, I’m about to get all naturalist on ya! I learned about this particular bird while living in Ohio and working at the Girl Scouts Camp.
You better believe that we ate leftover Girl Scout cookies all. the. time. Back to the bird. One day we were taking a walk with our ornithologist so she could tell us about different birds so that we could tell the girls. At one point she told us that we had a very rare bird in our forest, a Towhee.
Apparently this bird is pretty reclusive, but has a bird call that sounds like, “have SOME TEAEEEE!” Or as I like to think of it, “Flavah Flavvvv!” Anyway…as I was running my sweaty booty through the expensive and well manicured neighborhoods of Virginia Beach I heard this bird call. I stopped, looked up, and guess what? I saw it! It was super exciting and I felt like Steve Zissou when he found the electric jellyfish on the beach…er Man-of-wars.
So there’s my nerdiness for today.
