Odd things stand out. Yesterday, at the side of the road in tall grass – a hawk rides the winds to hover in place a foot above the grass, while 10-12 red winged black birds hover and dart all around the hawk, all within a few feet of space. Today, a kestrel loudly claws and scrambles across our tin roof trying to grab a small finch or chickadee out of the group or birds that hang out under the eaves. Later, a helicopter flies so close that the echoing chop of its beating rotors rattles the aging windows in our house and suddenly the sound is just GONE as if it never was to begin with.
