Friends of Harriett Raptor – White-eyed Vireo

While buried in dense shrubbery, they belt out a scratchy “chick-burio-chick” song. More often heard than seen. Look for white eye, yellow eyebrow, olive back, gray breast, and yellow sides. Thick bill characteristic of vireos. Forages in scrubby areas, overgrown pastures, and forest edges for insects.

Harriett and the eagle

“What’s with the Eagle,” asked Harriett.

“Just a friend,” replied the Doctor

“What? I can’t believe you made friends with an eagle.

“So?”

Silence.
