The hard-core birders in our group had a lot of stamina for long car-rides and standing around for hours hunting for birds. Pat had discovered that she didn't much like that. She found that Don and Linda (seen here) liked to get plenty of walking in on the birding trips and preferred to get home in time for lunch. Also, like Pat, they weren't up for birding trips every day.
At this point Pat began to car-pool on birding trips with Don and Linda on a regular basis. Bill's still staying home practicing guitar.
And, of course, we're always up for 5 o'clock Happy Hour with the group.
