A few moments ago, a neighbor called to tell me that two large moose were walking down the road. It's dark and snowing so I wasn't able to see them, but as I was talking to her, our owl swooped down to sit in the tree in front of me.
What a wonderful place to live! Tonight I'm reminded of all God's amazing animals living around us on Gallagher Ridge Road.
Just in the last few months, we've had...
...three owls hunting in our front yard
...geese walk out a drive way, turn on to the road, and then fly in the air in front of our car
...one grass snake curled up on our porch waiting for us to come home
Over the years, we've also seen...
...deer prancing in the fields
...baby raccoons wrestling in the middle of the road
...a young moose roaming around our front yard
...a bear lumbering across the road
...a mother duck and her ducklings waddling along beside us
...a fox travelling by
...a bat flying down our hallway
...bunny rabbits nibbling in the backyard
...squirrels being mischievous all over the place
...mice trying to move in
No calling birds or turtle doves,...
...but on Sunday, we had three partridges under a maple tree...
