Full Circle

When I saw the bird field this weekend I was reminded of the urban fields Tessa grew up in and that she has loved so much from the beginning - that high fall grass where the birds hide!

We started out on a check cord at the Southeast Clarke Park, me leading her into the grass to expose her to, well, grass, when she started hunting up song birds and some migrant birds that settled in the grass at dusk. It was the first lesson I received from Tessa. She was 4 months old.

What a nice coincidence that exactly 13 months later she would earn her JH in a field just like it.
