Bird Watching

Every day I go into the woods searching for the ever elusive X, never find it, and always come back with Y, in the form of muskrats, herons, abandoned fishing lures. Yesterday Y showed up in the form of Darwin, my old bird-watching friend, which was almost as good as X, but not quite. I could live with Darwin many a long day, with his daily sand walks, trying to put it all together, burning the old structures down, building new ones, and the birds, who really didn’t give a damn either way.
