I was sitting in the kitchen this morning when I heard a thud and glimpsed an explosion of feathers at the patio window. This beautiful little bird had flown head-on into the glass. It twitched for a few seconds and then lay still.
Jesus said that no bird would fall to the ground without God’s sorrow. Such an interesting–and poignant–glimpse into the divine nature! I had never appreciated it until this morning.
I was told by the property owner that the bird in question is a Vireo (possibly this subspecies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warbling_Vireo http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cc/WarblingVireo08.jpg)
