The Big Chill

We thought we would run up (4.5hrs) from Cincinnati to Beehunter Marsh near Linton, IN, see a Hooded Crane and drive home. Instead Liam sat in the car playing with his iPod while I stood totally unprepared in slippers (thought I put boots in the car) getting chilled to the bone in wet wintery mix weather all day long. I must have looked at 4000 cranes.
We are learning lessons every day during this "Big Year". Adventure makes life worth living though and I wouldn't trade it for the world. We had Mexican food for dinner and watched "The Rock" in "Journey 2" for a bit of decompression. It was ridiculous bit alot of fun for us to watch together!
We have tomorrow morning to look again and then we have to get back.
There is a small army of birders here and we are all fairly well connected so hopefully tomorrow morning will bring us some luck!
