When the native Americans roamed the land, clans joined at various times of the year to connect, offer and receive food, exchange information and celebrate common joys. We are in a different age now, yet the human need for connection has stayed the same. We just call it by different names and use electronics and technology to make it happen.
Yesterday, I was invited to a “tweet-up” of other folks who “bird, blog, tweet and chirp” to go birding in Milford Point, CT. The only requirement is that group participants be involved in social networking at some level: Blogging, Twittering, Facebook, etc. We gathered together from across our land, offered information and exchanged technology tips, dined on lobster rolls and celebrated our common joy: BIRDS!
Come on, share the day! Click on any of the photos to enlarge them.
We were careful not to linger near this Killdeer, who was upset at our presence. Maybe a nest or young nearby….
Willet, perhaps contemplating it’s upcoming migration journey. (Where did I put the GPS?)
