Rest well. Bob. I did not see your post, so Big Bird Brother is watching.

Beto...nice analogy, but does not= birds, their county voting registration
vacillates, with each weather system that blows through. Non-migratory
observations, like knowing who lives with you all year...a nice
illumination & data on a county by county basis. Exceptional notice posted
here of the tribes moving through are fun (where are the pine siskins?).
Those exceptional sightings...not considered rare & are simply seasonal,
not everyday, are neato. I.E.-- this week, I have seen a lot of critters
who signaled weather-on-the-way. (If I see juncos, I know to fire up the
chain saw.)

Be well.

Mark in Dripping.
