Yesterday we also saw, for the first time (we’re not birders), a male American Redstart
. A little spark of a bird, it feeds like a hot ember caught in the wind. I hope we see him again soon.
12°C (53.6°F) It’s good to see the sun. Yesterday the clouds struck me as a great grey herd of buffalo, roaming in all directions as far as the eye could see. We can’t remember what it was like when they were here, but the world around us never forgets. Now they graze above us, and we stay underground.
