    •  stopped exactly next to a pair of gfs (5+ / 0-)

      it was mom er dad feeding cute lil baby finch..and I got several pictures...then they flew off with great aplomb and cheerfullnissity.

      sooo cute..will post sequence sometime when I can...just before that I had made an instant turn down a short country road..'why did I turn here???....Oh!! that's why!!!'

      (comment not to be actual conversation but to approximate inner 'dialog')

      actual werds were more 'holy carp! you little beauties you' or possibly something else alltogether...

      anyway..whatever I said, I had a big smile on my mug for quite awhile afterward...later walked near a tree with a big redtail in it, pop goes the redtail.

      after that a Great Egret was playing in the 15mph was coming across the estuary bank and he'd slowly flap glide around and catch the wave and lift 50' to a stall and do a half roll and then go around and up again and stall and quork!' and stretch out and go around again...nobody watching but me...I realized later he was playing...I was trying to figure out if he had a stuck fish or something, but 'fun' is what it was...then he seriously flapped over the canal and landed...and tried to regain his lost dignity.

      good times..then a sparrow was singing a distinct song I will have to ID what it was..I never saw him but he was singing all around me...and different I think than the House Finches, Goldfinches and Song Sparrows I have been listening to..hmmm.

      No alligators tho...
