This bird was deeply important to me. I have dear friends now that I wouldn’t have met without her, and a range of singular experiences and memories that only months spent with a wild bird can offer. She had a good six years and I’m glad she lived her last days in a beautiful California valley and likely died of natural not human causes. Fly on Patch… fly on.

Sorry for the lull in my posting. Life is like that sometimes. BLW will be back up to speed soon… but the break is a good thing for now. Please feel free to root around and check out past posts, or pay a visit to the talented folks in the list on the right.
P.S. this is the 300th BIRD LIGHT WIND post in the last 14 months.
