I live in a tree near the Skagit river which flows into the Salish sea. The view from here is breathtaking although I'm usually more interested in viewing my dinner.
Some days I can travel up to 300 miles. I'm as fast as a car. I am friends with the wind. I play games with my friends, some of whom just stop in to visit on their way somewhere else. I have a few friends that usually don't live here at all but, lately, seem to have taken a liking to this place.
Life is pretty good here on the Skagit. Food is plentiful and survival is fairly easy.
Since I am a bird, I don't understand politics but I do know about survival. I know that it's warmer than it used to be and I find more shiny things to hoard than I used to. Lately, though, I've noticed more habitat for me and my friends thanks to Hedlins
I've travelled around and I think this is the place to be.
We birds know about magic.
