Grandkids? Resisters? Earth-shakers? World leaders? Consider the lesson of the subnivean tunnel with all its off-ramps. A notebook entry with sketch.

Grandkids? World leaders? Parents? Earthlings of any ilk? Are you finding yourself on the lookout for out a metaphorical off-ramp, a work-around? How about a subnivian tunnel?

Let’s label Earth an “Important Area” like the Important Bird Area designations for sites of outstanding value; do it for the Vermillion Flycatchers & our kids. (420 in 9 lines)

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.

Spectacular.
