I want to welcome our latest Perpetual Birder, Mario Domínguez Parra, who has no public profile that I can find but who follows blogs in a number of languages. What must it be like to have so many languages? I imagine it’s something like Cortázar’s wonderful book title, Around the Day in Eighty Worlds. Even my fragmentary, overly-literary knowledge of Spanish produces surprising little crosscurrents of thought on a daily basis. Mr. Parra must bob along like a buoy in mid-ocean, the bell in his chest clanging with joy. Welcome, Mario!
