Dear Tweeters,
 
One thing I'd forgotten to mention in yesterday's post was that there were  at least18 Purple Martins at Ship Harbor in Anacortes yesterday evening, June 1. That is by far the highest count I've had of this species in Skagit County. These birds were swirling around at sundown, landing on trees and other perches near the observation platforms, calling, and really putting on quite a show. This was a lot nicer than the usual situation when I've searched for these birds for quite a long time, eventually managing to glimpse just two or three birds.
 
Yours truly,

"Nun," sagte ich, "wenn ich ein Taugenichts bin, so ist's gut, so will ich in die Welt gehen, und mein Glueck machen." Und eigentlich war mir das recht lieb, denn es war mir kurz vorher selber eingefallen, auf Reisen zu gehen, da ich die Goldammer, welche im Herbst und Winter immer betruebt an unserm Fenster sang: "Bauer, miet' mich, Bauer, miet' mich!" nun in der schoenen Fruehlingszeit wieder ganz stolz und lustig vom Baume rufen hoerte: "Bauer, behalt' deinen Dienst!"
