opportunities along the way

Sometimes a chore, like taking out the garbage to the road, can have its blessings. Today we retrieved a mitt full of wild raspberries! And of course, we shared with our feathered friends. They sure were curious about the red bump on the end of their perch!

Bird flew down the chimney

A little bit of excitement for a holiday Monday morning. We were watching recently discovered bluejay birds nest within sight of our living room window. Then we heard a sound in the chimney. Maybe a bird trapped? I opened the rear damper so it could see the light down at the fire box. We had to wait a few minutes for it to make its way down. I opened the back damper of the stove and it made its way into the fire box…which still had old ashes in it. The bird didn’t appear to be too dirty. Don’t know what type of bird it was though. It was mostly dark with slight hints of a beautiful luminescent green.
