The kids have taken to birding. Five times in a day, Townes rode his bike to the bird sanctuary here at the campground. And they’d sit, staring and identifying a range of birds, never tiring, never getting bored. Allured by the colors, patterns, and habits of them all. Said Townes, in awe, describing one of them: “Red, yellow, and beautiful brown.” Also Townes has decided he no longer wants to eat birds as a part of his diet. He is taken with birds.
