I'm always excited to see the migrating birds wintering in our area. I've seen few American goldfinches and a lot of pine siskins this year. But I'm always saddened to see the sick and weak ones fall. This golden finch didn't seem to feel well and another sickly pine siskin didn't have the strength to fly into the trees and stayed on the ground near the azalea bush. Always a heartbreaker for me.
"For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s." ~Romans 14:8
