I bagged a new bird!

New to me anyway. It was a beautiful spring morning for this mornings camera walk up the road toward San Antonio and the birds were out getting their breakfast. There were House Finches and American Goldfinches eating fresh elm seeds, Killdeer chasing worms across the cow pasture, and Western Kingbirds and this new-to-me Say's Phoebe hunting insects from their fence-wire perches. I got some great pictures too.

Yeah, I know

I got behind again in my posts here. But now I'm caught up from where I left off on Wednesday, April 7, 2010 - Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park, San Antonio NM.

Stay What You Always Were

My sisters have been listening to me all my life and vice versa, and there's a limit to how interesting we find each other. Which is one of the reasons, surely -- this is exactly the kind of thought that didn't come up in conversation -- that it is at least as stifling as it is comforting to be with family. It doesn't allow its members to experiment with themselves. The penalty for being loyally accepted for the whole of your life is that you must stay what you always were.
