Woodpecker Jam

For those of you who have grown weary of me ranting and raving about Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in recent weeks, here’s something a little more light-hearted:
Susan Krebs and the Soaring Sextet perform an excerpt from the theatrical jazz production “The Aviary – a Celebration of Birds through Music, Poetry, and Birdsong,” courtesy of YouTube.
If only the real Ivory-bills were still making such resonant tattoos.

We never tire of your rants, Mr. Trapp. We just wish you were more of a touchy feely kind of guy. We just wish your parents had raised you to believe in fairy tales. We just wish that you could believe that what is not heard and not seen might still be there.

You are way too scientific.

Thank you for the anonymous compliment. My parents did raise me to believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. And I went through a phase in which I believed in UFOs, ghosts and other paranormal phenomena, and cryptozoology (but, alas, never faeries). Then I went off and got a college education, became a liberal, and was ruined forever. But minute, do liberalism and skepticism go together? I DO believe in global warming, and you can't see or hear that. Does that make me unscientific?
