Birds are plentiful in Port Aransas, Texas where we are spending part of the winter. Went to a morning birdwatching hour put on by the parks dept that drew serious birders with arm length telephoto lens and suitable hats.
Learned that “Bird on the wing left!” means you look up to the left of the person who hollered to see a bird flying. What follows is an optional participatory discussion about a) kind of bird and b) what the bird is doing. I left before it was quite over.
Later we were eating lunch in the car on the marina. I said to Sig, “bird on wing left”. But he had missed the birdwatching session so didn’t know what I was talking about — wasn’t much of a follow-up discussion.
