Okay, robins are a common bird. However, this is as close
as I've gotten to a bird that will stick around
long enough for me to take its picture.
So here you have it - the SDP ornithological
contribution to spring pictures.
I've been stalking herons, buzzing after
hummingbirds, and waddling after ducks,
all without success.
By the way, robins don't all go South for the winter.
Most seem to take up residence beneath a berry tree
on the Wishard Hospital Campus, gorging themselves
on the bright red fruit until they cannot fly,
telling their buddies robin stories -
"I'm tellin' you, Gus, it was the biggest damn
worm I'd ever pulled out of the ground!"
