  1. Magnificent, Ray! We are honored that you send us your nature miracles. Suffocating heat alternating with violent storms and deluge rains that create WAVES on Cold Soil Road, near Mercer Meadows, as though I’m driving in a rising tide ! — keep me from enough nature experiences this year. So yours are more essential than ever. So grateful Now you’ve become the king, not only of snowy owls, but also of osprey If you haven’t read Return of the Osprey (set on Cape Cod) you will treasure that book! Best always c
