While watching the first round games of the NCAA tournament, I couldn’t help but think of all the armchair athletes casting judgment on the real players. Can’t you hear it? “That was an easy one.” Or “What an idiot!” Yes, if only the real players could reach back through the lens and drag the chip munching couch slouch out on the floor. Can’t you just see him throw the ball to the munching idiot and say, “You think this is easy? Here, you show me.”
Going through that rant I was thinking about Mr. Pileated and all the work he’s gone through gathering his meals over the past cold months. With his beak fully extended into the depths of a tree trunk and his long black tongue reaching further into the unknown darkness, can’t you just hear him saying, “You think this is easy?” Enjoy our wonderful wildlife and the games everyone.
