There were a number of transcription errors, along with a factual one, in the original version of Wednesday's post reviewing Ronald Baatz's Bird Effort, which have been corrected. If you enjoyed the work you read there, you may want to revisit it as the poetry is now presented as it was intended. Thanks very much to Ronald Baatz for pointing this out and for his sympathetic understanding. My apology has been most graciously accepted.
