may we always hear the whisper of wings !

 simplicity is a bird, who just knows how to fly…

Its been six years since we moved into this area & we have seen & observed many of our co-residents on the farm, while going for long long walks with our dogs & also while driving towards the farm.

Some of them we have a visual record, some we have a audio/video record, some we have just seen & enjoyed their presence & not bothered to take out our cameras… you know sometimes birds also are very wary of the paparazzi !!
