    • Thanks Hien. I continue to follow and enjoy your work as well. I just returned from a short walk and thought of your recent post as I listened to, then watched, a yellowthroat flitting about in a brushy field.

  1. Like the trout you ‘caught’ for your header! The House Wren looks like it’s singing its heart out for you! How nice of you to provide accommodations.
