Up the road, afternoon (Tuesday)

A sharp cry really sounding like 'peewit', a solitary lapwing flying over hard and fast, an early herald of the flocks which will chequer the fields later in the winter.

Looked the bird up on Google. What an interesting bird.

Sea gulls, flying north from the Chesapeake Bay, winter over in the large parking lots around the fast-food joints here in town. A small contingency of them remain year-round, probably the young ones that imprinted on the terrain when they first arrived years ago.
