Holiday Sightings

by J.C. Brotherhood

Driving home from work on Main St. in the early morning I spied a flock of Puffing Beer Grebes harassing a female VodkaDuck in all her winter plumage. It occurred to me she wasn’t objecting very strenuously to their raucous attention.

Next to them were a couple of Rosy Billed Rum Suckers and a Scotch Hawk trying to keep warm (though by the color of the Rum Suckers beaks it didn’t appear they were in danger of freezing to death anytime soon).

Pretty soon a murder of Pilliated Black and Whites came through with their abundant displays of authority and ear piercing calls to disperse some Evening GrogBeaks gathered by Memorial Park  and after a while the Village quieted down again in the crisp morning cold.

Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night!
