Captain Jack and the cairn.

This morning we hiked up the cairn, Jack and I. It’d been a while. It was a very good hike. A cloudless day, warm as spring. We even climbed up above the overlook a hundred feet or so and sat a spell.

Not many birds today, but it didn’t seem to matter much. We both dug the mission, the exertion, the smells, the sights—the views of this miraculous world.

Not bad for a couple ol’ boys.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
