  •  I make a point to visit that nest every evening (8+ / 0-)

    on our annual week at the Fort. About 5 years ago I was honored to watch as two of their kids prepared to fledge, each evening venturing a little farther out to the edge of the nest, flapping flapping flapping until there was air between their toes and the sticks below,  then setting back down, clumsily at first but with greater and greater finesse as the week went by.

    This pains me.

    I came for the politics and stayed for the science.
