400th Post from the Nutty Birders!

It's pretty amazing to think that this is our 400th post on NuttyBirder. We have been blogging here since August 12, 2008 and we look forward to sharing our birding adventures with you for years to come. We continue to improve the blog and have recently changed the look a little bit to allow us to post larger pictures. What do you think of the new look?
In celebration of our 400th post, I am going to share with you some of my favorite photos that Eric and I have taken since we have been blogging.

Congrats on #400! I always love your bird photos, and I like that you included the turtle too (you know me and turtles). I'm heading up to the Biggest Week also and will be blogging too. I'll make sure I'm on the field trip you're going to lead! I'm going to try to get Rick to go. That will be fun....but how early will we have to get up? :-)

Hi, I'm writing from Dudley NC outside of Goldsboro (Seymour Johnson AFB is our claim to fame).

We have a pond on our property and we used to have a huge variety of birds most of which are gone for some reason.

So imagine my surprise when I took a walk around the house and spotted a strange bird sitting on the concrete overflow of our pond. I watered my roses, she was still sitting there. I went into the house to get the binoculars, she was still there. I went back in and did a search on the computer and saw that she was an Anhinga. She was still there when I went back out. Just sat there for over half an hour or more preening her feathers with her long orange bill. Sitting on her fat black webbed feet. I guess just resting for her trip to where ever she actually belongs. Which I don't think it's NC although she came up on a search 'water birds of NC'. Or maybe she was just bewildered wondering where in the heck she was and how she got so far off course. Unfortunately I wasn't there when she flew away so missed the white display on her wings which were folded as long as she sat there on the overflow. Gael
