I was tagged by my IG pal @raveninrye to tell the backstory of my username for So...here goes:
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all. Emily Dickinson / Day 4: HOPE /
We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another, and no sunrise finds us where left by sunset. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of that tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind to be scattered. Kahlil Gibran Day 10: 3:00
I am so enamored with pelicans. Seriously, like beyond fascinated, in awe and in love with them. Oh, and here's a cloud. Day 24: Cloud

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. Henry Van Dyke Day 10: I want...SPRING • Rainy day in the wetlands
Unique among North American raptors for its diet of live fish and ability to dive into water to catch them, Ospreys are common sights soaring over shorelines, patrolling waterways, and standing on their huge stick nests, white heads gleaming. Do you see the collection of twigs in its clutch?
Osprey population declined in the 1950's and 1960's due to the use of a pesticide called DDT which worked its way through the food chain & eventually accumulated in animals at the top of the chain. DDT affected the osprey's ability to produce calcium & caused them to lay brittle eggs. Once DDT was banned from use in the US, the osprey population began to recover. Conservation efforts, such as providing nesting platforms like the one pictured here, further helped to increase populations.
