A writer and an independent scholar, I'm dedicated to an empowered environmental citizenry! I celebrate art, science, and stories about animals, plants, soil, and even microbes. I'm a mom of two teenagers and I commute by bike. I'm on Facebook and Twitter.
João Silvestrini from São Paulo, Brazil, posted a video on Facebook of one of his daily visits from a young swallowtail hummingbird. It's a totally heartwarming scene — he calls from his kitchen window, and the bird slips inside and darts around a feeder. All the while, the gentleman keeps up a string of chatter — to us and to the bird.
