Wild Bird Wednesday
I stopped by the Double-crested Cormorant “hang out” when visiting Norfolk Botanical Garden. There weren’t as many as in this post. Their double crest is only seen on adult birds during breeding season. I found the feathered-wing patterns interesting on this juvenile, as the adults are solid black.
Cormorants differ from other water birds, having less preening oil on their feathers. That is why they are often seen perched near water with wings expanded to facilitate drying. These “water-logged” feathers help them stay submerged as they glide underwater in search of fish, their diet staple.

Share Your World
Cee’s questions for this week; I hope you’ll share your answers, too!
Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?
I only know my oldest brother claims to have picked my name.
Music or silence while working?
Depends on what I’m doing, however, I’ll listen to birds singing any time.
If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?
I referred to Cee’s anwer for clarity on this question–she’s looking for what items (aside from these listed) are special.
1) Art supplies
2) Quilts handed down through family
3) My botanical garden membership (a gift from a friend)
The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?
Bungee jumping, aerial acrobatics, get control of my email, get hubby to hike overnight…
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Thankful for warm days and walks at the botanical garden, more of the same!
This week at Eden Hills we’re hunting for Starts with L, Week’s Favorite, and antique. If you haven’t been over to see the spring goat kids, you’d better get a move on! Just click the link at the end of the post.
Week’s Favorite: Saw this today at Norfolk Botanical Garden
Starts with L: Lunch (Some of you may have seen this on Facebook.) Bahama Breeze restaurant, Quesadilla and House Salad with Island Vinaigrette. Mmmm!
Antique: I could make this easy and post a selfie…
…but, instead, this is some of the antique furniture found in the 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse which has been restored and now resides in Edenton, NC.
