I donated and downloaded for the latest release from the Aaahh netlabel, by a fellow named Nicolas Falcon. Last night I read lots of the bird list information for my area from the Great Backyard Bird Count. I was intrigued to see that the birds others saw are birds I commonly see. I am not a profound birder (indeed, I still can't identify too many birds), but it's a comfort to know that I continue to learn and improve. I've been examining a map called "Oklahoma Agritourism", but have not yet found my own personal rural idyll. The sky is pleasantly overcast. Our little saucer magnolia tree in the backyard is beginning to bloom. I'm happy to be alive.
