Saturday April 28th 2012 Tim
I should really
devote April 28th to a bird. I know I have spent time with the Summer
Tanager on an April 28th, and I on another April 28th I have attempted
to justify shooting Cowbirds. And I have spent time with Wrens that call
in the morning, just before the sun rises into the longer days all
through April into May. A shattering noise it can be.
There are White Bread
Sparrows in the car park and around the lunch tables at work. They like the
white bread and probably they are one of the few birds in the world that
pretend pickles have merit. It's their diet coke with the French
fries, I guess. Pizza crust is a favorite. They are not that
fond of jams and jellies, but they'll quarrel over them, so long as the
butter is real..
