Walking through the park this morning, I discovered which bird has been singing that song I’ve been hearing the last few weeks. It is the white throated sparrow. My recollection is that these birds overwinter here then leave in the spring. Why are they singing their mating calls now? Do they find a mate before they head north? Will need to look into that. Dad may know.
Spoke with Jane today. Of the many things we discussed, I told her of my frustration with the two glossy squares I get each day. They don’t hold the color or take the colored pencil. She suggested that I try Caran d’Arche Neocolor II water soluble crayons or Cretacolor Aqua Stic w. s. oil pastels. She also reminded me that my goal this month was to spend just a half hour a day on the journal with the purpose of creating a poem. Guess I just can’t help wanting to add more to the page.
