    One of my favorite books is a Peterson Field Guide of Western Birds.

    It sits next to my chair.

    I see birds all day long, then I look them up when I get home.


    Birds iz great!

    The article was cool the way it described the grebes surviving the incredible rain storms. I often think of the same thing when cold rain is pelting down and I'm warm and dry under my asphalt shingles, the way the critters are dealing with it.

    I think about that all the time with the little house sparrows that live here.

    Ive posted this before, but;


    Self-Pity



    I never saw a wild thing
    sorry for itself.
    A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
    without ever having felt sorry for itself.

    That's cuz an animal has no sense of that.

    It's not a matter of staying strong and persevering...

    That's a human trait.

    I use an app called Merlin Bird ID from Cornell Labs, even has bird calls and songs. When the squirrels come up on the deck I'll play a red hawk call. It's fun to watch'em evaporate.
