On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Help from unexpected friends

I'd been walking into the warm silence of mid-morning, absorbing the stillness and the pulse of soil awaiting seed, when a sudden rush of shrieking and squawking burst from among the pine trees and scrub oaks to my right. I stopped short, just in time to see the mockingbird swoop down toward the ground about 6 feet ahead of me, followed closely by a pileated woodpecker.
