This announcement is powered by the Lyndon Loonies, our local bird-watching club. The Loonies haunt local parks, farm fields, vacant lots and wetlands seeking to add to their life list. Which is ironic as Lyndon typically just has your usual sparrows, robins, ducks and Canadian Geese with the occasional Cardinal and Blue Jay thrown in along with mourning doves and a few pigeons. We’re not known for our variety of wildlife around Lyndon but the Loonies persist is seeking out the White-breasted Nuthatch or the Red-necked Phalarope, which brings images of a tough little bird chewing tobacco and spitting which would delight the Loonies if they could find one. They won’t find them in our backyard but they will find well fed birds who cast menacing glances towards the patio door when we’ve been remiss at refilling the bird feeder. Or they try the plaintive approach staring at us with sad eyes as they half-heartedly chew on a bedraggled worm. And sigh deeply as if to say, “here we are, don’t worry about feeding us we can always find a worm even though we told Mom we were going vegetarian. But don’t worry about us, we’ll be fine.” But I digress, if you love lists and birds, the Lyndon Loonies would love to have you join. Sign up today and receive a certificate for 20% off binoculars at Cindy’s Civic Market.
