What Love-Sick Birds Taught Me That Will Make You Laugh

Does nature boggle your mind, too? Have you laughed and learned things by observing the natural world in all its glory? You’re not alone.

No, Last Month’s Eclipse Was Not the Most Spectacular Display of Celestial Pageantry

Okay, I admit it. I was one of the millions of mesmerized viewers of the Great American Eclipse last month.  I was decked out with a camera, phone apps, and dopey-looking sunglasses.  I stood out on my driveway eagerly awaiting zero hour, alone, looking up.
