Black-Bellied Whistling Duck - Rare Appearance in My Area
This morning in my local Winston-Salem newspaper was a story about the black-bellied whistling duck's appearance at Salem Lake (our local recreational lake and main water source) - apparently only the second time seen here - first pic below from the newspaper's website; second image from the Wiki article quoted below.

American Civil War Museum opens in Richmond, Virginia
Well, a reason for us to return to Richmond (and of course a stay at the Jefferson Hotel) - the new American Civil War Museum just opened as a building attached to the Tredegar Iron Works/American Civil War Center (first pic) - just a paragraph from the Smithsonian magazine website quoted below - the Museum of the Confederacy is downtown next to the 'White House of the Confederacy' while the American Civil War Center is on the James River - so, a combination of both venues w/ new exhibits using modern audiovisual methods (much more in the link) - for Civil War buffs, a definite visit should be planned.

P.S. if interested, checkout my Civil War Travelogue, which has a number of posts on Richmond.
