Hi, Tweeters:

Shouldn't living through most of the nineteen hundreds (born in Arizona the
year it became a state) entitle one to post a Century Bird? Let me name
CASSOWARY, seen in Queensland, Australia in 1985. Not to mention JABIRU; or
FROGMOUTH, seen near Cairns on the same trip. As for North America my
favorite is cheery, CHESTNUT-BACKED CHICKADEE. I never tire of the friendly,
"dee-dee-dee' greeting from this small bird whenever I appear on the patio.

Still twitching, though at a slower pace,
