It's been interesting to see which birds are the most plentiful as we move from place to place. Southern TX was cardinals. Wichita Falls had mostly mockingbirds. So far in Amarillo, in this park anyway, there are many robins and house finches. There's also a large population of pigeons that are like a swarm going by in the morning and evenings, round and round. When my boys were young, their father got them involved with racing pigeons. Built the coop, shopped for birds, and would drive distances to release them to see how long it took them to return home. Some would not make it home, probably picked off by hawks, but the majority made it. It was a great lesson in responsibility for the boys. I think they have good memories of it.
I actually saw a prairie dog yesterday! Just standing up at attention just like you see them on tv. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to take some pics of them.
We woke to bright sunshine this morning, but on the horizon, a line of fog! Within about 3 minutes the fog had covered as far as I could see. The only place I've seen it move that fast is on the ocean. No ocean here. Bizarre.
Have you read Life of Pi? Did you like it? I loved it. Really, I thought it was just brilliantly written. Well, when I found another book by Yann Martel, I was excited to see what it would be. I bought Beatrice and Virgil and began reading immediately. Uh huh, it would be another spectacularly written book. The man is a very unusual storyteller. However, as it turned out, it was disturbing. So disturbing in fact, that I almost wish I hadn't read it. Almost. Anybody else read it?
