ON THE BACK BURNER

February 2

I Know that I do not live in a nature preserve,although we are only a few blocks from one, which includes a place to put your kayak in.But, I am seeing some fantastic birds. I saw four pilated woodpeckers ,at one time. I've seen one at a time,pecking away at a concrete post, but not four. And these woodpeckers were smarter than the last bunch. They were pecking at a tree trunk. Then , just yesterday, I saw two wild parrots. They were about 12 inches tall, yellow with some green. They were chattering to each other. I was walking Cricket and I was hoping that someone would come along so that I could share this sight. Now today, the cardinals are getting active. The female was sitting in a low bush right next to our slider. A neighbor told me that she saw two females fussing at each other , while a male seemed to be trying to break them up. They were probably fighting over him. Hope he is worth it. Then ,I was told where to look for an armadillo that has burrowed under a pile of leaves and branches.Maybe I do live in a nature preserve.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
