Rare but here is a Eurasian collared-Dove! I thought it was a pigeon at first. It’s a North American bird that has spread fast due to multiple broods a year; Cool fact, collared doves are an eastern European species that was known in Britain 60 years ago.
In the mid 90s, I was at Murphy Field on Penn’s campus at ultimate frisbee practice when a Void men’s team alum stopped by to say hello. No one who knew Void in the 90s will be surprised to hear that they didn’t give him the time of day. I threw a frisbee with him for a little while and then he had to get back to work. Fast forward 15? years and he found me on Facebook and took me out for lunch in appreciation of my long ago long forgotten act. Our yearly or twice yearly tradition of meeting up and celebrating small acts of courtesy and deep friendships continues til today. Here, my first hot pot experience (extravagant! delicious!), followed by fine sake, and a walk along the canal. #hotpot#sake#forestbathing#delawareandraritancanal#greatheron#mushrooms#kingston#newjersey
