The Songs of Amelia

The song of the sea is not the only song heard by those of us living on the Island of Amelia.
There is an abundance of birdsong filling the air.  Recently, in my Internet wanderings, I came upon The Fernandia Observer  an online publication sharing Island news.  
This video is from that publication and was taken by Bailey Strauss.  It is simply beautiful.  We have a bird bath, but no feeder in our back yard as it brings unwanted guests: namely peacocks who live nearby. I have never seen a Painted Bunting or an Indigo or Blue Grosbeak. 
But, as they are nearby, who knows…one of these days.

The quiet, still art of birdwatching, or watching the sea ebb and flow,
the art of living on an Island.
