Birding while Perking

For those that don't know, my day job is with the AA County Health Department. This time of year we do most of the perk tests for septic systems. Aside of the normal oppurtunity to get out on a nice spring day (actually it is just as likely to be cold and a downpour of rain), there is the chance to catch a little birding when one waits for a long perk test.
