The other day while my husband and I were enjoying time in our backyard I pointed out a beautiful yellow finch with a black head that I’d noticed a day or two before. The bird sat on a wire high above us as we admired it. My husband began to whistle softly and the bird whistled back in response. What an enchanting and delightful exchange! They were actually conversing with one another! To our utter surprise and amazement, the banter continued for quite a while, until the bird flew away to be with its other feathered friends. My husband and I sat in a quiet silence of awe and disbelief wondering if the charming event we both encountered actually occurred. When we finally spoke, we decided that had we not shared this touching experience together neither of us would have believed it had happened at all. What an honor and blessing it was to be a part of such magic!
