I began thinking about such as I bird-counted on my walk to yoga.
Cormorants. Great Blue Herons. Ospreys. Kingfishers: Fisherbirds.
Lots of mouths to feed, these egg-layers. Real.
Not like the egg-followers or “bot” (automated not human) army
used to falsely inflate Trump’s twitter numbers.
This is so not like my fisherbirds.
They are honorably fishy.
I’m disgusted with Trump’s fire-laced, incendiary,
irresponsible coded language for using nuclear weapons.
Who does this? It’s crazy.
I’m reminded that the Perseid meteor shower is this weekend
& although the current White House occupant is NOT fast & bright,
& he does blaze forth & attract attention, mayhap he will,
like the Perseids, fade away
(as in be removed from office) like these August Fireballs.
Note from Patty: I relish the fury of the meteor showers and seek to learn about them so as to watch them perform. I do not feel similarly about our President.
You did have options to watch the 2017 Perseids online. On Saturday, the online Slooh community observatory hosted a free webcast of the Perseids here, beginning at 8 p.m. EDT (0000 GMT). The webcast will also appear on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh.
The Virtual Telescope Project based in Italy hosted a live webcast Saturday at 4:50 p.m. EDT (2050 GMT). You can watch that Perseids webcast live here at start time.
Tweets of an American (no, not the President’s!) Redstart awe me.
Flashes from its orange–red patched wings
& long, fanned tail w/ white underparts alert me to his presence.
Flashing flushes insects from the foliage.
Then I hear chewy-chewy-chewy-chew-chew-chew.
ARS are active warblers with black upper parts & a hood.
They’re beautiful. All that they do is for the good.
Not so the motives of our PFN’s*
PFN = President For Now
