I walked to the nearest beach the other morning. It was windy and mild. I met a mockingbird, foraging for berries.
One of our neighbors had done something rather charming with Canada goose holiday decorations.
Not everything I saw was pleasant. I came across a dead yellow rumped warbler on the side of the road , and laid its body gently in the bushes.
And when I reached the beach, a dead black backed gull was lying in the deserted parking lot.
It was a typical winter day here on the Rhode Island coast. Still no snow…and blustery.
