On the spur of the moment my daughter, grandchildren and I went this morning to explore the local Audubon Society. My granddaughter wants to be a veterinarian and heard that the sanctuary could use volunteers. While at 11 she is too young to handle the birds, such as this magnificent owl, she will be able to work with the snakes, turtles, frogs and rabbit.
They have a very comfortable couch where you can sit and observe birds at the feeders outside the window. I told my grandson that he could see the same birds at my feeders outside my kitchen window.
“But you can’t sit on a couch while you do it,” he replied!
