The Gray-Crowned Rubberneck
Much fuss has been made lately about the dangers of texting while driving. I can usually resist that temptation but I am utterly unable to avoid taking my eyes off the road every time I drive past water. I'm looking for birds. It seems like every pond, stream and lake in the area hosts at least one egret or heron. I don't care that they're common. My heart leaps every time I sight one.
