Miracles do happen

Have you ever had a birding miracle?  Yesterday, at Barn Island WMA in Stonington, CT, in the warm light of the setting sun, my dad looked out over the marsh and said “Wouldn’t it be awesome if we just saw a Short-eared Owl right now?”

It would have been awesome.  It was the perfect setting and time of day, the quintessential spot for one of these birds.  So when my dad than spotted a bird gliding out in the glare, it was really the perfect Short-eared Owl.  It hadn’t been reported, but it was there nontheless.

A Miracle on the other spectrum is that I have yet to see a Nuthatch, a Blue Jay, or a Downy Woodpecker this year.  I miss them.
