It’s been a very long time since I’ve written a blog post. The reason is I’m not one to go out and do a lot of birding during the heat of the summer. Here in the Ohio valley the combination of the heat and humidity keeps me indoors. However I’m still birding in my own way, as a family of Eastern Bluebirds have discovered my Bluebird feeder and the meal worms.
I have been doing some birding by ear as my wife and I ride our bikes through the shady portions of the Little Miami Bike Trail. And retirement fast approaches I’ll be getting out more and more, so stay tuned.
Here’s one of my own haiku’s written for those dog days of summer.
As the heat rises
off the endless black ribbon
the Crow disappears
