PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/24/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: One of the things that continues to amaze me about nature, is its ability to invite and extend a openings for new friends and fellowship. When looking back over the last few years, there has been a polithera of contacts and connections, that have come as a direct result of one’s fascination with birds. From countless art shows and speaker events, to bird walks and citizen science projects, it’s quite amazing. It’s a common language of appreciation for our natural world that needs no translator. I believe it is a language of the heart, somehow. Having been introduced to just such a new group this past week, brings wonder to what amazing things are to come in the near future. Just as past connections have. Perhaps new ways to serve or just to be in united friendship and appreciation of the beauty of nature. This Great Horned Owl, our largest resident owl, is a prime example of someone reaching out to share such a blessing. As is ofter the case, the adult owl will perch within sight of its nest. Keeping a watchful eye on its two well developed chicks, who are already climbing around the tree limbs near the nest. This activity as called “branching” and typically begins as they start exercising their wings, just prior to fledging in about a week or so. Hopefully this new generation will be as successful to adapting to our ever changing world, as their parents have been.
