I was standing at my desk looking out into the garden I share with neighbors when I saw an American robin come by and pick up an earthworm. This red breasted feathered friend was followed by four more of their kind that paraded through the winter beds looking for worms and  finding no more quickly moving on.

Jan 22, 2021

100% of the state of Colorado is in drought. It’s the middle of winter and this kind of thing is extraordinarily unusual. The southwestern areas are in extreme drought, the worst category.

It's also something we can all do something about.
