Little did we know what Christmas would spark. When Scottie came in to tell me, There is a Rufous in our tree, I brushed him off in usual fashion. I thought he probably just wishes there was one, much like the wood stork he talks about could be in our creek out back — but equally as unlikely. He spends a lot of free time on the iBird Pro app and I can’t tell fact from fiction, especially when he’s deep in the business of learning about something. I hear about some bird fact no less than 10 times per hour. A mother can only humor a boy so much.
“Like the hummingbird sipping nectar from every flower, I fly joyfully through my days, seeing beauty in everything.” ~ Amethyst Wyldfyre
