    Let's see your bird pictures!

    Seen this Sunday morning on my walk through the park to the bakery. This is a European robin, called in German a Rotkehlchen, which literally means "red throat." It is the current "bird of the year" in Germany. Note that it differs markedly from an American robin.

    No, in the Bronx, New York, where I'm originally from. By the way, I somehow wish I hadn't sold my American n-gauge trains.

    Railways

    On Thursday, coming back from my walk, I saw this multiple unit train from a overpass. I find it a bit boring that there aren't so many locomotive-hauled passenger trains here anymore.

    That is something which I must admit I didn't know, although I hold a master's degree in Germanic languages and literatures. I admire your erudition. In A Conspiracy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole, Ignatius is wild over Roswitha. Thank you indeed, Sir. Cheers, Gauthier
