Spectacular: Vermillion Flycatcher!
A multi-syllabic name for a multi-gorgeous bird
who makes a shallow cup nest of twigs & soft matter,
lines it w/ hair & finishes it w/ lichen
where the high desert meets the mountains in Big Morongo Canyon.
I came upon a nest in the horizontal fork of a tree just off the trail.
Big Morango is designated an “IBA,” Important Bird Area.
This label will help the VF etc be.
Designate Earth an “Important Area” like the Important Bird Area designations for sites of outstanding value; do it for the Vermillion Flycatchers and our kids’ kids’ kids. (420 characters in 9 lines)
