The Bird Of Winter At The Celery Bog
No bird makes me think of winter more than the dark-eyed junco. When it shows up in my yard I know that the snow will show up soon as well. On this day though I was ignoring most of them, but this one was just posing way too nicely for me. I was focused on the goldfinch group that was in this patch, but this junco decided to join in as well. I have talked about taking what is given to you out in the field, and this is a good example of that.
Thinking Of Simpler Times
The last couple of days have been interesting to say the least. I don’t know that we have been in this place as a nation for quite some time. I think that it is good to know what is going on, but this morning I was getting way too into what was happening. Sometimes it is good to take a step back and think of better times. This quite few moments at the bog was one of those times.
