After a lot of road trekking, I was tired and just wanted to do some local photography. Then reports of a rare Rose-throated Becard came into the news room and I had to make a hard decision. Chase this bird or observe the art of a Rosy-faced Lovebird feeding. Neither were life birds. And only the Becard would be a state bird. The artist won. And the birder inside cringed.

And while these aren't life and death situations, they do make me think about the entire scheme of things. Every piece of my day is perfectly coordinated to accomplish those personal goals. This was one of the first times I had to REALLY pick which path to roam! Life does not wait. Nor do the birds!
