Spent Saturday morning on a birding outing with four sasoned members  
of the Mankato Bird Club. Although a member for sveral years it was my  
first oppurtunity to participate. The tour included the Northeast  
corner of Blue Earth County. It was an amazing experience for an  
admitted novice birder, as we identified 69 species alarge number of  
which expanded my life list. We were disapointed to miss Wild Turkey,  
Bald Eagle, and Eastern Blue Bird. Happily I saw first two on the way  
home, and shortly after a pair of the latter began examination of one  
of my houses. My wife and I were able to install our nest cam and  
later I found that the female had begun forming a "cup" in the wood  
I can only hope to someday consider myself close to you true birders.
