This is the kind of wonderful surprise that I receive as I walk out into my yard.
Many years ago I visited the glorious Bird's Acre Sanctuary and began to dream the dream of one day living in such a magical environment. Today and every day I give deep and gracious thanks to all the forces and the love that allow me to live at the wonderful wren house a bird's acre of its own making.
I am entranced. Mesmerized by the endless beauty that surrounds. Whereas the turtles on the log of two posts ago will spot my movement and dive under water in a flash...this Great Blue Heron fellow allowed me to practically walk right up to him and never actually flew off since I gave him space.
