A Wren flew into my house today, I am reminded of Celt bird lore...a Wren is an embodiment of the divine feminine, but was oddly known as the 'king' of birds due to her immense singing voice. Due to this, she was beloved by Bards and thought to inspire joy, light heartedness, and creativity in all it's forms...message received and understood!!
One summer I had this strange looking bird in my garden. For weeks I kept wondering what is was, and mentioning out loud how similar its movement and stance was to robins:). Even though Robins are my ultimate favourite, and spirit animal, I had never seen a baby Robin before:) This one is already breaking its tangerine chest <3
Possibly the best known of the North American spotted brown thrushes and the only one that commonly nests in parks and gardens, the 8-inch-long wood thrush is noted for its incredibly musical song, a flutelike ee-oh-lay. The wood thrush is known by several other names, including bellbird, in reference to its clarionlike song.
Pink sedum, echinacea, Russian sage, and spiky bright purple liatris in mid-late Summer. The tallest shrub, Eupatorium maculatum 'Gateway' Joe-Pye Weed, is a prairie native, and should do well in the Intermountain West.
