Mockingbird, Galapagos

So enough with the bridges for a while.

People aren’t the only builders, as this mockingbird from two years ago reminds me.  And in a week when I saw my first crocuses and flowering trees (albeit 8 hours drive south of my home), well, it’s a nice reminder of the inevitability of spring, too.

  2. How the hell do they land between those long thorns? I guess the ones who can’t all died off.

      Barbara – I think that’s the short answer, all right. The longer one includes the weight of these birds (not much) and that many of them have keratin (I think? Like our fingernails, anyway) covering their cute little feet.
