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.

I expect extraordinary and ill-tempered.
But hope for break-throughs** to marvel at.
