Consider this installment of Best Bird of the Weekend the one-handed edition. That describes my typing style after last week’s shoulder surgery. So let me get straight to the point: my best bird of the weekend was an odd silhouette in the trees that binoculars  revealed to be an American Robin (have they been gone so long I’ve forgotten their forms?) Corey’s sighting was no less prosaic, a Cooper’s Hawk that has settled into his neighborhood for the winter, terrorizing the pigeons and starlings.
