Subject: [VTBIRD] Song Sparrow power
My first Song Sparrow of the year here in Pownal .. singing up the
I expect. It has been a very long winter and I am so appreciative of
power of a spring song.
I must also pay tribute to our resident Tom Turkey for his morning
moves in our upper meadow. I haven't seen that the girls are taking
notice just yet but Tom doesn't seem to be taking their indifference
personally. He just gobbles and dances the morning away . what a life!!
The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of
morality by religion. -Arthur C. Clarke, (1917-2008)
