I want to thank our latest Perpetual Birder for joining us on this flight of fancy, the illustrious fiction writer, poet, translator, and editor, C. M. Mayo, who must have ESP because I just last week started reading her colorful, engaging novel, The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire. Many moons ago her celebration/meditation concerning Baja California, Miraculous Air, helped to prepare me (more or less) for the intense beauty of that peninsula before I finally came to visit it (all too briefly) just last year. (See some sample Cabo San Lucas photos below.) Welcome, Madam Mayo!
