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

Sunday bird blogging

My internet was sporadic yesterday, and today I devoted all of my bandwidth, mental and otherwise, to trying to deal with a huge backlog of work. (Work work. The kind I get paid for, rather than the kind that's fun or fulfilling to do.)

And it was gray and gloomy, with rain most of the afternoon, so here's an appropriately mundane bird shot: a grackle in the Ramble.

I do try not to anthropomorphize birds, because I'm pretty confident I don't have a clue what they think, but I can't help thinking of this bird's expression as baleful. And that seems somehow appropriate to the day.
