I saw a FEMALE CANADA WARBLER (I think) in the lilac bush outside the kitchen window today: yellow below, gray above, speckled throat, long slender body. The BEAVERS and DUCKS are floating around so quietly tonight, I feel as if I’m watching a silent movie. On my way home I saw two small RACCOONS hiding in the weeds beside the road. They were rustling around and squeaking. They didn’t run away–just looked back at me while I looked at them.
