I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Friends, I am off to southern Mexico for 2 weeks. I will look forward to catching up with you all on my return. In the meantime, I hope to track down one of these sweeties! Will post some birdy photos when I get home.
