The other morning when we were getting started with school, The Queen began whispering to me to “come quickly and quietly!” I looked out our front door thinking that someone had pulled up in our driveway. I didn’t see a car, so I wasn’t sure what she was pointing at.
Then, I saw it.
I wasn’t sure what “it” was.
At first, all I could see was something white and feathery with its back to me. Honestly, I though Hedwig was sitting on my steps with some sort of wizard post.
I walked over to the dining room window to get a look from another angle. This is what I saw:
My hopes were up that maybe it was a stork delivering a present:) But, there was nothing else out there but this bird.
I think it is an egret. I am still wondering why it chose to be sitting on my front steps. Finally one of the cats decided to investigate which caused the beautiful bird to fly off.
What a blessing to see something so beautiful up close. Just a nice little, unexpected visitor.
