On the Fourth Day of Christmas …

My daughter had to go birding for a biology assignment, so we went by canoe on Armand Bayou. I had replaced the cane in the front seat this week–there was a small hole in it when we got it, and we made do as I waited for the materials and tools to arrive.

We saw plenty of birds: brown pelicans, cormorants, blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets, ospreys, various kinds of terns and gulls, doves, cardinals, and lots of vultures.

No “calling birds,” though.
