Great reading and still more birds

Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation is absolutely hilarious! I'm not that far into the book yet, but it's a voice and style that I aspire to. I wish my prose were as fluid and sharp a combination of self-deprecation and skewing other people. Perhaps, someday, with lots more practice, it will be. But she'll get to the Pulitzer Prize before I will.

Maybe that should have gone into my How I Create blog.

Saw another rose-breasted grosbeak today, but it never made it to the feeders. What did make it to the feeders, however, were our FOS white-crowned sparrows. 2 males as far as we could tell.
