I dont mind pigeons. some people call them trash birds. they're okay by me.
wussup shamy? i watched this fellow take his prize, a pancake, from the dumpster.
an american coot mother rushes to a trio of chicks being harassed by an ibis.
a crazy mix of birds! it was hard not to think of the magnitude of loss in the gulf while admiring them.
This was me, many years ago. God love the child of this time - she will need more strength and fortitude than ever.
Grateful for this time, this chair and the proximity of this amazing park.
* Edith was killed by a hawk this morning at 7:05. V watched it on the security camera. It was a very unhappy phone call to receive. i do hate it for him, for this could have happened on anybody's watch. what to do? confine them in a pen at all times? thats no life, even for a chicken. I would never hurt a hawk, or hold a grudge on a hawk. a hawk does what he does and there isnt any meaness to it. However, I am heartsick once again, for Edith, for every creature with the sad misfortune to live in the Gulf of Mexico and for all the sorrows of the world. I hope this note finds you all well. xo chickory
