We here in North Carolina were treated with, in my opinion, a very unwanted snowfall this past weekend.

The air is crowded with birds — beautiful, tender, intelligent birds — to whom life is a song. ~GEORGE HENRY LEWES~
Today goes to the birds of the Refuge. You never know what your going to see, from songbirds to water fowl. We of course have the Cardinal, the State Bird of my state!
The beautiful Red-Winged Black Bird…..
The Majestic Bald Eagle….
Egrets and Herons and Seagulls enjoying breakfast…

“He spoke of very simple things- that it is right for a gull to fly, that freedom is the very nature of his being, that whatever stands against that freedom must be set aside, be it ritual or superstition or limitation in any form.
“Set aside,” came a voice from the multitude, “even if it be the Law of the Flock?”
“The only true law is that which leads to freedom,” Jonathan said. “There is no other.” ~ Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull~
