Oddfeathers. Oddfellows. Face-to-Face Meeting Between the Syrian Government and the Main Opposition. What are the Chances of a Breakthrough? Well, What are the Chances of Seeing an Arctic Tundra Bird on the CT Shore? “Hope is a Thing With Feathers Perched in the Soul.” (A 420 Character 9-Line Poem by Patty

Unlikely-to-be-around-here-now birds are called Oddfeathers:

They Just Show Up & we marvel at and wish luck to them.

Recently? Trumpter Swan. Rusty Blackbird. Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.

Catbird. Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Snowy Owl.

Glaucous Gull, Greater Scaup.

What will happen with that group of odd fellows gathering in Geneva?

I expect extraordinary and ill-tempered.

But hope for break-throughs** to marvel at.

Unlikely?

PATTY

“Some 30 countries are sending representatives to Geneva for talks on ending the war in Syria.

Nearly three years of conflict have left more than 100,000 people dead and forced 9.5m from their homes, but there appears no end in sight to the fighting.

Here is the background to the talks in Switzerland – in 60 seconds.

    Visited Konold’s Pond today at 4:00 pm and found 5 Mute Swans and what
    looked like a juvenile Trumpeter Swan, though Patrick’s photo of the
    Trumpeter looks like an adult. Am I misidentifying this bird?
    I have pics. 1 Redhead and several Mallards too.
