THE TIME HAS COME, THE WALRUS SAID, TO SPEAK OF MANY THINGS (see below)

Sorry, have to fly. I have a lot to do before I’m done here.

January 3, 2023, will mark the 1,000th Post on my blog, and for a number of reasons, the last post I will be making. The prior posts will remain available and if you crave birds, my Flickr site (https://www.flickr.com/photos/98342503@N00/?) has many thousands for your perusal. While I have enjoyed bringing you a bird each day, several factors have contributed to my decision to end the blog posts. Among them, the weight of the camera rig I have been using has placed a strain on my already problematic back. I have lost the central vision in my dominant eye geographic atrophy and AMD and while I have learned to focus the camera with my left eye, it is a bit of a strain and I need to care for it even more now. And I need to spend more time on my writing.  But you will still be able to find me at my daily poetry (and photography) blog at https://anoldwriter.com so feel free to drop by there. I have enjoyed this effort and thank you sincerely for spending a few moments each day with my avian friends.

All day I sit here. They say she’s in labor, and you know I get the delivery call in the middle of dinner
