I have been taking my 11 year old out for lunch once every week or so. I hope I can do it for the foreseeable future. We get some bread or bagels at the bagel shop then go feed the birds on the statehouse grounds. Yesterday there were baby sparrows, juvenile blue jays, a thrasher and a cockaded woodpecker then the pigeons showed up. It was really nice – it was hot though. At one point a jay called out a hawk warning and every bird left – disappeared like in the movies, I expected a t-rex to come stomping out from behind the Civil Rights memorial. Anyway it got to hot so we left.
