For the Birds

It's day two of the annual Backyard Bird Count. It is such a wonderful opportunity for taking a few minutes and relaxing with the beauty that surrounds.

Here at Wren House we have a bird's eye view of wonder most every day. These Great White Egrets being snapped yesterday back in the cove on Lake Smith.

It's cold here in Virginia after a few days of balmy and when the temp drops the cove becomes a haven for Cormorants, Hooded Mergansers, Egrets and Heron.

This week there has been the thrill of an added bonus ...for the past three nights a Bald Eagle has been roosting on a dead but sturdy Loblolly pine limb that hangs high over the water .
Here's a link for the Bald Eagle nest at the Norfolk Botanical Garden 5 miles from my home


  1. What lovely photos! I just told a mutual friend of ours the other day how I want to do a private retreat in your backyard. Let me know if you offer those opportunities again!

  2. Great photos Donna! I actually had an eagle soar through our yard this week, which made me think of you :)

    Happy day before your birthday, my wonderful, creative, and inspiring friend!! Boundless love and wellness to you, as you journey on for many many more.
    Love, Karin
