Read some Fine poems here.
On a ranch tour today, I learned that vetch is a good forb; a lek site is the intimacy room of the sage grouse; a golden eagle will kill a sheep, lug it thirty feet in the air to its nest, and eat it; the residency foundation is trying to get federal designation as an Important Bird Area (I.B.A.); and antelope run seventy miles an hour.
The picture above is of the creek (crik) behind my studio. Storm's a comin'.
I'll give you a buck if you write a poem or short short (Clem!) entitled "Important Bird Area."
