I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

I planned to go to the Ramble early this morning, but I overslept and didn't get there until almost ten, when the only birds in view were the usual: starlings, grackles, robins. But I'll never qualify as a serious birder, because I like starlings and grackles and robins. I even love house sparrows, the tough little hustlers fighting off pigeons for the scraps from outdoor cafes, and most people consider that they barely count as birds.

Here's a robin, with his beak still dirty from digging for his breakfast.
