Smooth Sailing

"On a day when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open
and the world is full of beauty...

Today is such a day."  ~ Rumi

The Bobolink winters in South America, as far south as Argentina.  It breeds here in the summer in tall grasslands.  Its numbers are declining since the habitat it needs, which is tall undisturbed grass for nesting in the summer months, is becoming harder and harder for them to find.
