Interesting words - Annie Dillard
"Wild grapevines tangled the treetops and shut out the sun. Few songbirds lived in the deep woods. Bright Carolina parakeets -- red, green, and yellow -- nested in the dark forest. Woodpeckers rattled the big trees' trunks, ruffed grouse whirred their tail feathers in the fall, and every long once in a while a nervous gang of empty-headed turkeys came hustling and kicking through the leaves -- but no one heard any of this, no one at all."
Annie Dillard (continuing on Pennsylvania)
