I was sitting and looking at the tree, just a few moments ago, and I noticed how the light behind the little angel showed it's little stuffed body through the fabric. My mom made that angel many years ago, maybe 20-25 or so. I just thought it looked so, so sweet! Just a quick Christmas share. Oh......one more thing....... early this morning I braved 25 degrees, all bundled up, and headed out to the country to help with the Audubon yearly Christmas bird count. It was much fun, and also a great learning opportunity for me. I saw many wonderful birds, but unfortunately, learned from the extremely knowledgeable birders I was with, that the populations are dropping enormously fast. One gal, who has participated in the count for the 30th year in a row, said that there appeared to be quite a drop in population since last year. That's discouraging, but when you see a lone kestrel hovering (literally hovering) above a farmer's field, why that's quite a Christmas treat! Sorry, no pictures. It was all my gloved, but freezing hands could do to hold my binoculars up!!
