18 September 2022 Well, it is Sunday morning and I did not make it to Toronto this trip.

It’s a Pip at Port Lincoln and other news in Bird World

17 September 2022 Good Morning Everyone! The rain has not really stopped. Perhaps I realize it more now that I am literally living in a glass room (and loving it).

Early Monday in Bird World

12 September 2022 A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not on the branch but on its own wings.
