I was surprised recently to hear that I have been awarded the Jack Henshaw Award “for significant contribution to Learn4Life and the greater community”.
The presentation was done in falling snow before this morning’s walk at Marie Curtis Park.
The morning group saw three Fox Sparrows. These birds breed chiefly in the dryer parts of the Hudson Bay Lowlands and most go to the southern United States or northern Mexico to winter.
Marie Curtis Park scenes:
Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree. – Emily Jane Brontë (1818–48)
