No Owls This Morning: December 2021

In other winters I have had good luck finding a few owls at Col. Sam:

So it was with eagerness that I drove out to the park.

NATURE POETRY

Life is mostly froth and bubble;
Two things stand like stone:
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own.                   – Adam Lindsay Gordon (1833–70)
