Once again, lovely! You always have such a unique take on--well, life! Like you, I've never come close to meeting any of the requirements of the label; Birder----but I do love watching birds and chance encounters and close observation of common birds [like myself] are some of the most fascinating and delightful bird-watching experiences I've had. Did I say, again, how much I enjoy your photos?

I recently visited a friend in Montclair, NJ, who is sharing her back patio with a Mourning Dove that built a nest on a baker's rack right outside her kitchen door and actually laid an egg or two in it.

As a failed birdwatcher (I read books about birdwatchers instead of becoming one), I can certainly appreciate this line of thought. We were up in Yellowstone, chasing wolves around the Lamar Valley and frustrated at not seeing any animals. I whined to Ranger John of our plight while we stood together scanning the horizon with our scopes and binoculars. He replied, slowly "It's not the finding. It's the looking," and went back to his binoculars.
