Artwork and Words by Nona Estrin

So many birds still passing through! You may hear subtle small chips and rustling sounds in brushy areas, where song sparrows and white-throated sparrows feed and rest by day. Or even be stopped short by alto song-fragments of a migrating fox sparrow. Near woods we’ve been hearing the sudden cascading song of a ruby-crowned kinglet. But with severe drought in so many southern states, I pray for their safe return next spring!
