Summer Blogging Hours: Flickers & Robins

We have a pair of flickers & a pair of robins nesting in our woods. I've been spending a lot of time watching them fly around. And pulling weeds. (I've been pulling weeds, not the birds.) And conducting my online course, Understanding Vietnam, which takes time & concentration I usually spend pecking out my observations in this space -- It turns out I do have a finite capacity for online activities. Who knew?
