My friends Weir and Mary took me for an outing today. Weir knows more about birds than any person I've ever met, and I had been sending him and Mary news from Kenya about birds I had seen there.
Today, we finally got around to me hanging out with them for a day. We were going to go to the raptor center, but it was a rainy day, so we headed away from the rain, to North-East Iowa. Here we stopped at a swing in Bellevue, next to the Mississippi. Click on the photo to see more photos from today and earlier times with friends.
