Look up and listen

When Susan Smith, local bird whisperer, was here last month she encouraged us to look up and be quiet and listen. During the spring bird migration there is a whole world going on above us she said. Well, the migration may be 1/2 way or almost all over, but my friend Judith looked up this week one morning when we were walking to our car at 7:30 a.m. to head in town for work---and look what she saw.

My camera was ever-at-the-ready and we caught it, I mean, them.

Chanting along with morning prayer--albeit from the outside!

As Judith said, "We have four weather vanes on the roof."

(And, of course, we were all silently thinking: please don't be pooping on the windows!)
