Word from the Woods
The word is out.
As a result, birds have started reading my blogs.
After my post showing a male Wilson’s Warbler I received a very polite tweet, asking me to show a photo of a female.
Notice that she looks similar to the male, except she has a muted black cap.
It’s very difficult to take a photo like this because these birds are small, busy, and quick. None of them stop to pose for a photo. And they spend most of their time inside trees because they’re safer in there.
I’m pleased that birds are participating in the conversation. This matters because it makes a blog a better blog.
That’s how things work, through cooperative partnerships. Someone reads a blog and then shares it with friends.
