After thirty years in this house, we have put it up for sale. We are planning to leave Passaic. We spent part of the day today looking at other homes, other backyards. A song sparrow was singing in two of them. Another had been certified as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Wherever we go I will be looking for opportunities to observe the local fauna and report on it here. I’m sorry that this is a relatively lame post but I missed last week and I don’t want to let it go too long. More to follow. Thanks for visiting and reading.
