Thoughtful post, Dave. I’m in blog paralysis, I think, or writing slump. So photos and a few sentences to accompany are about all I can muster right now. It’s not especially satisfying, but I feel like at least I’m getting myself dressed and showing up at the party. And I’m enjoying everyone else’s explorations.

Love the vireo photo, and the idea that fledglings may be able to locate hidden springs.
