Welcome Visitors

A pair of blackbirds has nested by the front door of Clergy House, delighting us with their song, and boldly venturing ever further into the Cathedral complex. I just snapped the female while working at my desk.

A moment later, the male turned up. Then, struggling with my Pentecost sermon, I heard a sound above me ..

The female was joined by the male, and I gladly embraced this distraction from work!

For lo! the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear upon the earth, and the time of the singing of birds is come.

Thank you for your photo essay on the blackbird visitors. It is an eloquent homily in its own right.

This may be the most delightful of all the great pictures you have posted. "The birds of Pentecost?"

I'm glad you are on the road to recovery. Your loyal readers have missed you.
