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

Sunday bird blogging

I've been trying to think of a word to describe how I've felt the past few weeks, and I finally came up with subdued. Nothing terribly wrong, but nothing especially wonderful either. There was the usual constant drumbeat of unnerving headlines, of course, and enough stupid mistakes in my personal life for me to think once again that I really need to hire a keeper. Like setting up my new fancy coffeemaker to make my morning coffee and forgetting to put the coffeepot in place, so that I woke at seven am to the welcome smell of fresh coffee and found it all over my counter and floor. Or that I dutifully filed my taxes on time, but somehow managed to skip the last step where I actually paid what I owe to the Federal government.

But I managed to get to Central Park with a camera this week, for the first time this spring, and it was good for my mood and my soul, and this gorgeous Green Heron—the first I've seen in Central Park—was just a bonus.
