My ‘A ~ Tales from a Wildlife Garden’ continues over at Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens. While I was writing the piece on the (Piranga olivacea), I had my first sighting since 2012.

This beautiful songbird sings out from the tip tops of trees and can be difficult to see. He sometimes will hover over prey before harvesting with his hefty bill.

Scarlet synchronism was at play as my fingers tapped keys spelling out a tale from Flower Hill Farm Retreat. There is more to the story with other blurry images if you follow the link above.
