Obviously this is a Thanksgiving like no other in my lifetime. Like many others, I am sacrificing time with loved ones in hopes we will be able to celebrate together again very soon. It is not without pain and some questioning on my part about just how much risk to take. We all need to make those decisions for ourselves and for those we love. We also need to respect the decisions of others to do the same. I hope you take some extra time to express gratitude today.
And…..since many of us have big birds on our mind today, I thought you might enjoy some of the birds I have recently seen. We went looking for the snowy owl, but found these white birds (and a soaring eagle) instead. We also found snow geese, a first for me!
