Here's an idea. Instead of boarding a plane or
driving for hours, let's do a bird photo shoot by traveling about 15 feet. From the
dining room out to the back deck of our New Mexico cabin.
Which we did. Joining me was Chad Smith,
fellow Tennessean and fellow bird photographer. He actually did have to fly out here
I promised him Pygmy Nuthatches, who are all over
the place this year. So tame are they that when I go to put more seed on the bird
tray, I have to say, "Excuse me," to one or two little sprites who are reluctant
even then to leave the tray.
