I was excited to find my first Magnolia Warbler today at the nature center in Jonesboro. Also found: a Grey Catbird. I also visited Craighead Forest where there’s plenty of baby Canada Geese right now. So cute!
I was excited to find a Sora foraging about earlier today at Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge. Pictured below are other finds, along with some Purple Martins and a House Sparrow that hung out in a bird house near my aunt’s pool in Jonesboro.
I finally made it to Rhode Island! My Aunt Jo will be presenting at a conference this week so a second aunt, Cindy, and I decided to tag along.
It meant today involved an early, but quick flight, shopping at the mall attached to our hotel to avoid the heavy rainfall once we arrived, and lunch at P.F. Chang’s.
We won’t be here long but Aunt Cindy and I still adecided to take the day easy. The best part was hands down picking up Aunt Jo and heading to dinner.
We ate at Kabob and Curry, Fine Indian Cuisine. I’ll admit I would never have ate there if my aunts hadn’t been with me. I would have missed out.
We had Nimboo Soda, a tradional Indian lemonade with mint and roasted cumin, and I ordered a sampler plate that allowed me to try a variety of dishes including vegetable samosa – a crispy turnover, seasoned potato and pea filling, a mango and mint chicken curry bowl, dal makhni – black lentils, red beans, ginger and tomato, and rice pudding for dessert.
