So, the first meeting went well. We actually didn't meet the day we were supposed to meet because he got stuck in traffic! So I waited around anxiously all day for nothing!! When we finally met [way early the next day] I didn't even have any time for the nerves to build, I just got ready and took off! The work I have to do is pretty easy and I get to hang around equestrian centers and noisy birds all day. I've actually got some scouting to do... I need a couple of back up sites in case things don't go as planned at the sites we have already chosen.
Here's one of the birds we're hoping to attract:
It's a Great- Tailed Grackle. Picture courtesy of Google Images, hopefully I can take some decent pictures of my own soon.
