I am hearing what Miriam Lawrence is hearing on a
daily basis this year. I am sure it is a BB Cuckoo
and have made several forays into the woods after it,
with no luck. What an illusive bird! I can't place
exactly where the call comes from in the canopy, even
when I seem to be very close to it.
Monday I was startled by a Crow silently zooming close
to the porch, hotly pursued by a male Oriole.
Pink Lady Slippers finally beginning to wane in my
woods. But I discovered a Pinxter in the "pond". Now
where do they come from? I have been scouting this
area for 20 years and this is a first timer.
