is changing to #NewBirdPoker
As of today the daily #BirdPoker
game as you know it will be no more.
Starting Sunday #NewBirdPoker
will be a weekly game with a winner declared on the following Saturday. That winner will then create a new theme for that week and pick a winner at the end of the week and so on. You can still post bird photos every day if you like, but the theme will remain the same for the whole week. The winner will be chosen from all the photos of the week.+Dusty Gedge
has volunteered to curate the first week and he will pick the winner on Saturday and be responsible for contacting that person to make sure they are available to take over the following week. That's it for rules and it should run smoothly. If not we can modify the game as needed.Please reshare this post so everyone sees the new rules
This brings us to my future plans...
Bird photography has taken a backseat over the last three years as I got married to my loving wife, Joanne. We remodelled our home, built a back yard oasis, and designed the gardens and waterfall to attract birds. Renovations are almost done and I was looking for a new challenge to keep me busy, allow us to travel and do more bird photography again. I also became very intrigued with 4K video and travel vlogging on YouTube.
So Joanne and I bought a motorhome and our long term plans are to vlog our trips around North America as we visit the various birding hotspots and scenic destinations. Eventually we will venture to both coasts of Canada and also south into the United States. There are lots of RV travel vlogs on YouTube but none mention birding and very few mention Canada.
Our first trip is only a 3 hour drive, but it's to a very special place for birding in North America. The Point Pelee area on the north side of Lake Erie is mecca for spring bird migration. The point is like a zoo in May with birders and photographers lined up shoulder to shoulder at dawn waiting for the warblers to arrive. To avoid the throngs we are instead going to camp just east of there at Rondeau Provincial Park. It's quieter, almost as good for birding and a lot less congested than Pelee. From the campsite, we can ride our bicycles to the various marshes, boardwalks, and Carolinian forests that are right in the park. On the other hand Point Pelee is a day use only park so it would mean a 40 minute drive from our campsite to the park and then a shuttle bus ride out to the point for dawn and is not very appealing to us. Freedom to go birding in the morning, stop for lunch at our RV and then go birding again followed by a great sunset over the lake is what we are looking forward to at Rondeau.
I hope you join us on our YouTube channel... RVingandSeeing
