Since childhood when I rescued a sparrow, I developed a fondness for birds. I find them mysterious and they remind me of freedom or detaching from situations. I also have a relationship with the bird kingdom. I don’t go looking for birds, they seem to find me. When I encounter neighborhood birds on a daily basis I give them names. Some people think that’s strange and I say to those folks, allow a little bird magic to enter your life.
So here are birds I encountered on the last days of April 2016.
