Stay in the center, and you will ready to go in any direction.

chickens

I am grateful today for a slow paced morning soaking in phoebe song and cold crisp air - seems winter is ready to paint her palate of transparency.

Reflection in a Drinking Hole

My chickens are so funny the way they chase each other around when one of them has something good to eat that the others don't.   It never occurred to me that songbirds might do the same.  Tonight a juvenile cardinal found a big, thick and delicious caterpillar on the muscadine close to me. Within seconds of her dropping it to the ground to feast upon this morsel she had found two more juvenile cardinals began chasing her around trying to get it.  They were all awkward looking like young cardinals are.  They followed her beyond my vision.  I wonder if she shared or there were leftovers.
