Buzzard, Magpies

One buzzard* floats, circles, rises over the trees across the field. Magpies race past my window in black and white patrol cars.

Last night, finished Inferno and, because I don't own the other two parts, started The Canterbury Tales.

* Buteo buteo is a kind of beautiful hawk. It is not what many of you folk in North America are probably thinking. Compare definitions one and two here.
