Today I am thankful for Facebook. Where else can you post a photo like this, asking if anyone knows what wandered onto your parent’s back porch, and have an answer in less than 10 minutes?
It’s an American Coot, by the way. And it won’t leave. At least at the time of this posting. So my Dad put a blanket out for it and threw it a few crackers, which I am told it enjoyed. Hopefully it will join its flock soon and be on its way. If not, I am guessing my Dad has a new pet–at least for the winter.
What are you thankful for today?
