A Question

Bull cricket. None too happy. Woke up on the wrong side of the log.

A friend asks if birdwatching is exciting. I would say yes and no. The birds seem to enjoy it. And it's peaceful. You can hear that roar in your ears that sounds like crickets. Of course, outdoors it might be crickets or something. So, yes, sometimes it's a little disconcerting to think some crickets or something might be closing in.

But then you see a bird and you think to yourself: "Is that one of those birds that eats crickets and/or other cricket-like animals?"

And you check the underbrush and then you think: "I really hope so."

Yes, birdwatching is exciting and not for those who are faint of heart or who are *seriously* weirded out by crickets or something that might be crickets.
