in which witness is borne: birds, politics, fiction and critical art theory

We saw this YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT HERON in a remote village on New Providence Island in the Bahamas. The birds down there are utterly fearless, and as relaxed as the local human population.

Other birds spied in and around Nassau during the past week: PALM, BLACK-THROATED BLUE, KIRTLAND'S and PRAIRIE WARBLERS, RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS, KESTRELS, NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRDS and something I regrettably missed photographing but was most likely a CLAPPER RAIL. Other wildlife we encountered were Bahamian lizards and snakes, near the tall jack pines that line the beaches along Paradise Island. I did not notice any unusual gulls among the RING-BILLED and HERRING gulls.
