Under the graceful branches of the large elm in the yard, a Nuttall’s woodpecker flits in to feed. His arrival creates a small furor as smaller birds flutter their wings and sing out in protest, fleeing to the elm’s branches to wait their turn. A cool breeze caresses my skin as I stand watching and musing. Where has this woodpecker been? He was here (or one just like him) last year at this time. What wanderlust strikes him and where does he go? The urge to wander struck me too as autumn came on, and I was fortunate to join friends on a trip to New Mexico, with its wide open spaces and lush colors.

WEATHER TIDBITS We're actually ahead of the curve now, rainwise. Last weekend's drencher put almost every reporting station at or above the seasonal norms to date. With the generous helping of moisture this late in the season, this spring promises to be a verdant one for the greenbelt around Laguna, with almost complete soil absorption. It was a big storm, affecting the entire West Coast. Now it's bearing down on New Mexico and West Texas where it's really warm.

Once again, a cloudy, gloomy weekend, followed by a pristine Monday with minimal crowds. Weekends are treacherous for your Tidbit Guy, but he comes out of hibernation with gusto on Monday mornings. The drones and clones are back doing their 9-to-5 thing, and of course it's sunny and beautiful here on Monday, July 1. Monday also saw the beginning of the 2002-03 rain season, which is kept like the fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. The 2001-02 season marked the driest season ever for more than 80% of all communities in Southern California, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.

ELISABETH M. BROWN On a recent trip to New Mexico, we stayed in a house overlooking a canyon filled with Pinyon pines. Pinyons don't have the Christmas-tree shape of other pines, but have a branching pattern more typical of trees with leaves. They produce edible pinyon nuts, otherwise known as pine nuts, in their exceeding sticky pine cones. Pinyon pines are often found with Juniper bushes, in a community known as Pinyon-Juniper woodland. It grows in areas so dry that no other pine can survive.
