who know me, I am an avid birdwatcher and have a “Lifelist”.  A Lifelist is a lifelong list of birds that you’ve

was that they kept going up and down and turning this way and that.  But, no matter which way they
turned, they all seemed to stick together.  Almost like there was an invisible thread that held them
