Trent’s Weekly Smile #WordPressWednesday #Reblogs #Inspiration

 

Many things made me smile this week, but none as much as reading Trent’s post. Because of my limited vision, I don’t have an opportunity to observe wildlife the way sighted people do. I can sometimes see birds soaring through the air if they’re low enough. I need to be close to deer or other animals in order to see them clearly, and most won’t let a human get that close. So, I’m sharing Trent’s post as my smile this week. If you can think of something that made you smile this past week, read his post to find out how to participate in this feature. Most important, keep smiling.

The Rewards of Running a Bird Sanctuary #WordPressWednesday #Reblogs #Inspiration

 

In yesterday’s post, I talked about how I enjoy nature. In the post I’m sharing today, fellow author Kayelynne Booth explains how she crated a bird sanctuary in her back yard. You’ll find photos of the many birds who have visited her there. If you can’t see them, I’m sure you’ll still appreciate her descriptions. Enjoy!

I started watching the birds which visited my yard about fifteen years ago. My property is densely forested and the early morning chatter in the trees was difficult to ignore, so my gaze would naturally go up to the trees around me, and I was amazed at the number of different types of birds that were dropping by.
