Andy’s Adventures in Bird Watching

I’ve learned that armadillo’s eyes are very sensitive to light. Andy should love it here, we have seen mostly rainy days since his arrival. For more of Andy’s journeys and to meet his “mom,” please visit:

He’s a curious critter, wanted to know what was all the fuss about birds. I prepared a vantage point for him, and now he’s a regular bird watcher, too.

Watching for birds

The brown thrasher came by for a visit. 

Andy thinks he and the brown thrasher would make a good insect-and-worm-hunting team.













Then he asked where all the noise was coming from. I directed his attention to the roof peak–the northern mockingbird was sharing his song repertoire.






Andy rode along on a trip to the library. I inadvertently mentioned “bookworms.” He was disappointed to find the library a place filled with books, rather than worms. I think he was getting hungry!  

Andy’s Adventures Continue–in Southeast Virginia

I heard a light tap-tap-tapping at my door this morning. Wondering who would be stopping by so early, I fluffed my bedhead and tentatively opened the door to find a weary traveler. Andy the armadillo had arrived from his globe-trotting trip to New Zealand! Judith thoughtfully packed his favorite jelly beans to sustain him for the long journey.

It’s a stormy day here in Virginia Beach, the kind of day best spent snuggled under the covers. Since Andy has a good case of jet lag, I tucked him into bed to sleep it off, and tomorrow our adventures will begin. Oh, the places we’ll go! I’m hoping he can meet some of the famous bloggers that hail from our area. Please let me know if you’d like to make a date!

His family lives in Georgia; so far, he has visited Florida, Texas and New Zealand. Here’s a link to Andy’s travel journal:
