Well folks, I’ve managed to snag some pretty good video footage of a singing and calling Scarlet Tanager. What an unbelievable bird—lucky for me he didn’t catch the forest on fire!
Now it’s late afternoon and time for me to quit laboring away at the public library in Cadiz, Kentucky, and get myself back out into the field.
Thy duty, winged flame of spring, is but to love and fly and sing.
James Russell Lowell
