Me and Paul

Lorna took this photo of Paul Prappas and me shortly after our Rose-throated Becard vanished before we were able to get a camera on it - both feeling a combination of exhilaration and dismay - me staring at a place in space and time where a bird once perched, Paul dreaming of what might have been. ;-). 

The next morning when I walked down to the park there were already people milling about searching the trees. We have occasionally checked the neighborhood since, but the bird has proved to be a "one day wonder".

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. And of course, Willie Nelson's tune "Me and Paul" hits the right chord.
