I saw remarkably few birds on our walk yesterday. Maybe the (mostly) hardwood stands offer so little food, they’re barren of birdlife.
Speaking of a lack of resources, I’m worried that our current economic downturn is going to hit a bunch of people hard—people who don’t know how to live poor, either psychologically or the tricks and techniques for eating cheaply, scrambling for necessities, and the like. Which will make it worse for all of us.
