I’ve been known to develop obsessions and lately it appears they are sheet pan dinners (NYT Cooking – Sausage With Peppers & Tomatoes),
memoirs and owls. I would love to be able to share a photo of the owl and owlets I’ve been trying to find for weeks, but all I can share is some of the trees they may be hiding within.
I’ve been looking high
and low for my favorite bird
while someone has appeared very bored with all my stopping and looking,
I was very lucky to see another family out wandering around and,
after tracking the sound of an unknown bird, to watch a green heron for only the second time. Seeing the green heron and the fact that I’ve now been bird watching long enough to recognize the sound of a new bird was almost as exciting as if I had found the owls.
