A bird's eye view of Ducks Unlimited

I love the title. I can't take the credit, a professor of mine had a very funny moment today and I told him I was using it!

This entry is going to be a pitch for a great event that some classmates of mine are working on planning. Not only am I attending, and do I support them, but I’m hoping to help them gain some attendance by writing this entry!

“Ducks Unlimited (a non-profit agency) conserves, restores, and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.” -Ducks Unlimited

  1. Did you get any of Sandy's winds,rain or more? I look at my Atlas and try to envisage how far it spread, along the coast and inland, and then I compare it to NZ.!!!Stay safe, love the DU photos, enjoy the night. Greetings from Jean.

    1. Jean, I fared well with Sandy. Everyone was very concerned where I live, we were hit VERY hard with Hurricane Irene. Look up Schoharie, NY and Irene. It was devastating, much like what the tri-state area is experiencing. Very sad.
