MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

A complete change!

This is what I saw when I opened the bedroom curtains this morning....


I know it's not a great picture (taken through a screen, unfortunately), but this is a beautiful red-tailed hawk, obviously lying in wait for any unsuspecting mourning doves that dared to visit our feeder. 

From Ronald Reagan.... " God's miracles are to be found in nature itself; the wind and waves, the wood that becomes a tree - all of these are explained biologically, but behind them is the hand of God"

A red tail lives in a stand of pines a 1/2 block away and is, unfortunately, a frequent visitor to my feeders. I can always tell when he is near by the fluttering out front, then dead silence. Sometimes he actually perches on our deck banister. Its all about nature and I get a thrill every time I spot him.

Nature is beautiful, but it's not always cute and fluffy!
