The bird was mostly white. Black head. Brown beak. It looked like a pelican.
" We need to look at the bird book when we get back to the house, " I said.
We wanted to know what kind of bird that was that was standing next to the pond.
We looked through the book. Couldn't find any birds that fit our description. The closest we came: White pelican. But white pelicans don't have black heads and their beaks are brown, not orange.
Mystery. Who doesn't love not knowing, exactly, what one sees on a walk?
Go for a walk. No telling what you might see. And don't worry if you have trouble identifying that which you spot. Sometimes not knowing is better than knowing.
Today is a Tuesday. No sabbath this.
