April Fooled
Apr 3, 2013


I'm an amateur photographer who had a missed opportunity this week.  I was told that a crested caracara was spotted outside Dartmouth, near Lawrencetown Beach. The national bird of Mexico came north to a cold marsh area of melting ice.   This, when every living creature would like to finish the winter in warm Mexico.

Obviously, I was supposed to drive 12 miles and tramp around in the cold rain, so someone could later shout at me "April Fool !"    Naturally, I did not bite.  Except later, the next day, the April 2, 2013  edition of the local paper had a front page photo (not mine) and story about the wayward bird. The first one ever spotted in Nova Scotia.

For all I know, the stupid bird is going to Newfoundland or is headed back home through New England.  If you're interested, Google a birding group, in case the caracara is headed your way.
