Pip the Birding Dog
I have a lot to catch up on as far as telling about my first wonderful days with Pip. But here are a few photos from today, when we took a little time for backyard birding. She is VERY aware of bird sounds and sometimes watches finches at the feeder or flying overhead. A pair of Merlins is nesting nearby, and she pays attention to their noisy calls and tracks them when they fly over (if they're close). And she definitely heard the #42 bird on her life list, a Pileated Woodpecker. I told her that from now on, that bird will hold the answer to life, the universe, and everything for her. That made her wag her tail.
