My daughter encouraged me:
I’d finished my walk, and was coming home, when I suddenly looked up, and saw a Red-tailed Hawk being chased all over the sky by Grackles and Robins:
Dad said he had some work to do… Sit on the porch, and on his lap Keep his computer and work… tap-tap-tap.
I’d decided to go for a brisk walk. NO birding, I’d promised myself. But I knew it was a hollow promise when I slung my camera around my neck! (well, even without the camera,I’d stop for any interesting bird or other creature…I knew it.) Like an addict who’s determined to kick the addiction, I set off at a brisk pace.
