He writes that he was working at his desk in Florida with the window open when he heard a whole lot of noise outside.
He went to see what was making the racket finding this female mocking bird in the middle of what looks like an oleander shrub. He ran and got his camera.
All was well though, as mother (and my friend) watched the little fledgling progress from sitting amidst the mulch to getting its wings together.
New life! Never quite what we expect, and as kids always giving parents heart attacks, but still - the great circle of life continues. (Guess who just saw The Lion King over the weekend?)
Hope your holiday weekend is/was wonderful, whatever you were celebrating, Easter, Passover, or other important occasions - all great reasons to be grateful for our spring expressions of continuity.
Many thanks to Bob for the photographs. They are terrific.
