Friday, October 07, 2005Didn't see much this morning--or rather, I did, but the birds were all flying way up high and feeding/bugcatching and I couldn't get a good view. Tantalizing glimpses of what I think may have been a FOX SPARROW and a VEERY, and the highlight toward the end of my walk was three AMERICAN COOTS. These birds actually run on top of the water and then swim a while. They are gregarious and silly-looking, with a blobular yellowish beak and sooty black body.
Does anyone have a recipe for apple pie they'd be willing to share?
After the week I've had, I just want to BAKE.
