Cornell Lab's Migration Celebration

Hey--if you're in Ithaca this weekend, head out to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Annual Migration Celebration. Yeah, yeah, yeah--I KNOW I'm not a migratory bird, but when people see me out in the open like this, in a spot of sunshine, you'd think I was an Ivory-billed Woodpecker! It's lots of fun seeing how taken with the color red human beings can be, and even if Archimedes, that cursed screech-owl, will be there, at least he'll be safely hooked up to jesses.

Dear cardinal, I'm glad you're not a migratory bird. I always love seeing your bright red, and your lady's elegant brown with red accents, especially during the drab winter months.

Aww, shucks! Is my face red!
