Wow, how beautiful!!! The best kind of critter I've ever had come into my yard was a stinkin' possum. Sheesh.
My sister-in-law, who lives in central California, recently had a foreign exchange student from Austria stay with her for several months. One day the girl came running in to the room where my SIL was, excitedly demanding that she come see this beautiful bird. It was the most beautiful bird she had ever seen, she was very excited about it. My SIL went to see what she was raving about and discovered a common blue jay. It really hit home how often we take some things for granted.
