Watch out for Deer Ticks!!!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Look out for Deer Ticks!  Yesterday was Day One of the VSO Breeding Bird Survey and I picked off five deer ticks off of Clyde.  I have been getting a few ticks here and there off of him all the time but this is the first time I found a lot of deer ticks.  Since they are dangerous, watch out!  They are so small and dark that they look just like a mole.

 

Here is Stage Two of Dragon!  I am getting into a number of painting decisions at this point.  The value and color patterns in broad areas have been pretty much determined.  Next, I will make the surface much more complicated.

This image, like the first one, is the result of many layers but I am only going to record the last one in the studio day.

 The VSO Foray in Franklin County, Va started yesterday!  Come on out and join this great, important birding effort!

The VSO Foray this year is in Franklin County, Virginia June 6 – 14th.

Information on nesting birds in Franklin County is scant. There has been only one previous foray that covered a small portion of Franklin County in 1976. The only other organized breeding bird study in the county was the Atlas Project, 1984 – 1989. This is a great opportunity for participants to contribute to a better understanding of nesting birds in this part of Virginia.

Evening gatherings will be at Ferrum College. For directions to the College click here. Specifically these will start at 5 pm each evening. We’ll meet at the gazebo beside Adam’s Lake on the Ferrum campus. We’ll wrap up around 6 pm, and make plans for the next day as needed. Todd Fredericksen will have a cook out at his home on the evening of June 9th. I’ll post directions soon for how to get to his home.

Some general reminders:

We won’t call in birds for the foray counts.

Don’t enter private property without permission, and be sure to call ahead when we do have permission.  Thank the owners for letting us on their property.

Don’t skip “boring” areas (towns, farmer’s fields, etc.).

For more information contact Clyde Kessler, the coordinator of the 2015 Foray, at ckessler@vt.edu or call 540-639-5076 (before 9 PM).
