I woke up early—ugh—because I could not stay awake last night, having woken up at 5 am in Laingsburg. It’s a vicious cycle. Flew to DEN and then a layover down town. I took my binos and went walking to a park in the middle of town. Saw some grackles and pigeons before finding my way to a beautiful flower garden and running into a new (for me) species of sparrow. They are called Brewer’s Sparrows and they only live in the Western U. S. so had I not been in DEN, I wouldn’t have seen them. They seemed to enjoy the dirt, like they were taking a dirt bath, and then were kind enough to perch on tall stalks of bushes in the bright sunshine, only a few feet away so I could study them with my binoculars. Very friendly.

Off to ATL then DTW today, then to training tomorrow evening. I’ll be gone a week with the Desiring God national conference going in MSP on Friday through Sunday.
