Toady I practiced being a vegetable, soaking up the sun and enjoying what ever birds flew by. I did see 2 barn swallows, though they were using different tactics to gather insects. I always enjoy watching their flight patterns as the pluck insects from the air but today, they were both on the ground driving their bills into the sod to collect their bounty. A Great Blue Heron flew over, 2 Black Vultures glided by, and there were myriad crows, both American and Fish.
It's been so unusually cold lately, and I've been so busy, that it felt wonderful just to veg. These notes will have to suffice :)
