      Like an ancient prophet, armed with forebodings of doom and destruction, Hurricane Sandy bore down on New York City in the early hours of 30 October, An extra-tropical cyclone, a thousand miles wide and armed with hurricane strength winds, Sandy was only eight days old.

The third book in the Munro series is in progress with a deadline for the delivery of the manuscript to Corazon late in I will issue the print version to tie in with the ebook.

      Sanderlings and Dunlins on the shore of Long Beach in Stratford, CT, Jan. A recent trip to Long Beach in Stratford, CT, yielded one Snowy Owl sighting _ it was far in the distance, but still nice to see, of course. Rachel Carson, whose book Under the Sea Wind set a high standard for nature writing, described Sanderlings as running “with a twinkle of black feet.” Carson depicted Sanderlings’ foraging along the beach as “keeping in the thin film at the edge of the ebbing surf where puffs of blown spume or sea froth rolled like thistle down.”.

    For the last three Thanksgivings, my wife Ruth and I have fled the metropolitan Atlanta area and sought “nature therapy” through the environments of Jekyll Island on the Georgia coast. For this all-too-short vacation, we take our bicycles with us, stay in a hotel near the beach, and ride for hours on Jekyll’s plentiful bike paths or long beaches, taking in the fresh sea air and stopping.   Sanderlings are unique among our local sandpipers by having three forward pointing toes and no hind toe. This is an adaptation that allows them to run fast as they move about the beach searching for food. Food items of sanderlings vary with their habitat. While nesting in Canada in marshes, they feed primarily on insects.
