Re: Birding trip

Wild rice with water chestnuts sounds great to me - I would have
eaten more than my share.  I used to make mammoth Thanksgiving
dinners, but ate very little of it.  The one thing I do miss is the old
Southern standard ambrosia - oranges, pineapple and coconut.  And
most of the people who came to my dinners wouldn't eat it.  Go figure.

I love loons, too, but seldom see more than one or two at a time.
Where we stay in Chincoteague has a balcony over the interstate
waterway canal and Chincoteague Bay.  Many mornings there are
a couple of loons cruising the canal when we get up.  But nothing
comes close to the absolute mass of snow geese.  Just amazing!

Hello Auralie,
    I sure wish I could have been there to experience your sightings...... I 
have watched all those on TV at one time or another.. especially nice now 
that we have HD, but nothing like the real live being there I am sure. I 
have a thing about the Loons.... those fascinate me no end. Coloration, 
eyes, their calls.... To me there are like a train whistle in the night... 
their call is so forlorn.
    Dinner sounds nice as well... I could go for Crab over turkey. Everyone 
here has to go for the traditional or some version thereof..... I fixed wild 
rice with water chestnuts this year to take to the dinner and only one other 
person ate any. Wasn't stuffing.
    Glad you had a great trip.
