White above, white below, and the dried weedstalks in the yard a scale model of the woods. A wren circulates with a brief news bulletin.


  1. A sweet picture that called up a sweet memory of when my daughter was young; on our walks in the neighborhood we would make up headlines that matched bird call cadences.

  2. That’s funny. I did that with this Carolina wren this morning, but all he seemed to be saying was “News! Newwwws!” So more like a news vendor than a headline writer.

  3. It works while walking the dog, too: What Headline Is The Dog Smelling? was another game.
