Piercing

calls of NANI! NANI! bellow from Hannah

as she cruises alongside LydiaChloeWillliamLukeClaire

w/her brown eyes, thick lashes, tight curls, angel grin, & round rump;

waaaay cuter than that long-legged bird of Wellfleet’s muskeg*, the Greater Yellowlegs,

who wades & sweeps his bill side-to-side grabbing crabs & frogs by feel.

Both bird & babe announce their presence with a 4-noter.

But now? Silence.

Piercing.

PATTY (the “Nani” in the above piece)

*Curiously, although the Greater Yellowlegs is very common and widespread, since it hangs out in “muskegs” (wet bogs with small woods on islands and forests with clearings) which are full of mosquitos, the Greater Yellowlegs tend not to be visited and studied by such as us, unlike for little Hannah who, no matter what HER presentation, EVERYONE wants to visit with her and study her every move.

  1. Hi Nani – This is Hannah – I liked your blog post about me and the yellowlegs. Is that really a drawing of me, or is it actually a drawing of Young Nani wearing my 2010s clothes?

    1. I know. I know. I didn’t get the nose right, but Hannah! It’s YOU, and I chuckled constantly for the hours it took to sketch it. (I am a sloooooow sketcher! Unlike the Greater Yellowlegs and you who are faaaaaast.)
