Ladies and Gents,
Despite yesterday's bad weather and ominous forecast for this morning, we
were able to attend Easter sunrise services which were held outside our
little church in northern Floyd County. I found myself listening to the
birds more than I probably ought to have been, but it was quite a symphony.
There was a vireo (species unknown since I don't make a habit of carrying
field glasses to church services) singing sweetly from a shagbark hickory.
There were alot of other common birds singing but the most impressive thing I
saw was a red-headed woodpecker in flight. For some reason, I don't see
red-heads very often and they are really spectacular.
I love creation. I worship the Creator.
