the soul longs to move
migration is one true path
nesting another

This modest verse is my way of introducing Mariya of migrateblog, someone who knows all about weighty matters like migration and nesting. She slings a mean haiku too, as you’ll find out when you read her perfectly poetic presentation of I and the Bird #31!

Is bird blogging like poetry to you? Share those beautiful, imaginative, and elevated thoughts with the sensitive readers of I and the Bird. Send a link and a summary to me or our next wonderful host, Deb of Sand Creek Almanac by Tuesday, September 12 for inclusion in our Thursday, September 14 edition.
