His piercing eyes gazed through the window. What life did they have beyond the glass barrier,  he wondered.

  1. Great photo! My dad was a wildlife biologist, and sometimes I’d go along with him on one of his bird counts. While I have genuine respect for nature and consider myself to be an environmentalist, I never developed into much of a birder.
