We flew out of LA at midnight on Friday and arrived in Detroit at about 7 am.
We got our rental car and drove to my cousin’s home. She and her husband built an earth-sheltered home on several acres of land. They keep part of it as a normal yard, but the rest of it they leave wild, with a swath cut through for walking. There are bird feeders at the edge of the yard and bird houses everywhere. She has more kinds of birds in her yard in a day than I have in a year.
