Wild places

… wild places, while shrinking, are more numerous than many think.

Roger Tory Peterson, foreword to Soldiers Delight Journal, Jack Wennerstrom (1995)

Horsepen Branch Stream Valley is by no means “wilderness” — it is a strip of land along the Hoursepen Branch (a creek) hemmed in by house developments. But a quick 30-minute walk before breakfasts yields an Indigo Bunting, a Black-throated Green Warbler (common but a first for me), a Carolina Wren, among many other usual suspects (robins, cardinals, titmice …).
