In Which a Bird is Identified and Sherbet is Eaten

Well, I think our little hummingbird at work is a black-chinned hummingbird. Friday I caught her turning her eggs over, and a little sun was dappling her back.

And just in time for the holiday weekend--rainbow sherbet! With the first spoonful, I was transformed into an 8-year-old Nerdy Scientist To Be, catching fireflies in the dusk and listening to my folks and the neighbors voices floating, laughing and chatting, disembodied and surreal, while we tingled with excitement at being allowed to play outside so late.
