walk without seeing a pigeon first. What I really had wanted to do was get
up and drive out of town before daylight and somehow find a Great Horned Owl
as my first year bird. That did not happen, and so now I have to think how
to drive the truck with my eyes closed, until I get to that magic spot that
will give me an owl. It was all so easy, back in ancient times on the farm,
when all I had to do was look out, and there was one or the other of the
pair of GHOW, just waiting for me. Martin said we could have walked to the
end of the street in the dark and heard a Partridge. But that's not good
enough! Happy New Year to all birders!!
