This morning I spent about an hour watching a trickle of migrating birds in the skies over my yard. At one point I spotted some distant Sandhill Cranes (new yard bird, #138) heading north on a path that probably wouldn't have brought them within a half a block of my house. Also in the distance I heard the rumble of a helicopter in the direction the cranes were headed. The cranes must have heard it also because they made a left turn and flew right over my house.

This isn't my first encounter with the president. Back a few weeks ago when my blog pageview counter hit 20,000 he dropped me a congratulatory note.....Congrats! 20,000 visitors! How did you prevent the website from crashing?-B. Obama.
Other dignitaries also sent their well-wishes. Here are a few.
George W. Bush - Thanks for showing the human being and birds can coexist peacefully.
Gerald R, Ford - Not at my airport they can't.
Vladimir Putin -I read blog with shirt off.
Thanks gentlemen and Mr. Putin. I assure you I'm fully clothed when I write these posts
