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

Hey, if he’s done photographing and blogging us, let’s get out of here.

Today marks 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.
