Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

It is astonishing how violently a big branch shakes when a silly little bird has left it.

  7. Sweet little bird. I’m glad things are warming up for these poor birds (and for us) after a long cold winter.

    Such a darling little bird. I knew it had to be in the larger Finch family…Just yesterday a fat Sparrow took off from an Apsen sapling we both remark about how the sapling was moving so quickly from the force of the bird takeoff…and Thank You for answering my question from you offering of yesterday…Now I know which “Mansfield”, Yiyun Li quoted. Hope your afternoon brings you many smiles…and wonderful nourishment from Susan, kitchen skills…I know she is an amazing baker and assume cook as well…you once mentioned her meatloaf (yum)
