  1. A most original piece, Mick. My Dahoon Holly are bursting but the Cardinals and their crowd yet to make an appearance other than the full-rime (meant to type T but I like that way better) inhabitants. This the in-twebeentime for our feathered friends – even the non-local Sandhill Cranes seem scarce round here – perhaps the big road-rip and concrete pipe replacement sewer system that takes up their former open field grazing grounds the cause.
