One Is The Lonliest Number

 You may remember that I posted a Cormorant few weeks ago. They are very rare in our area, as they are sea birds. We are not near any sea, so I had never even seen a cormorant before. I felt kind of sad for him because he was all alone. How had he even gotten here, I wondered. This evening I saw him again.


Notice his webbed feet? He was sititng up high in a tree vibrating his yellow throat. Then, much to my surprise, I saw ANOTHER one, in the water below!!


What a surprise. So now there are two, which is always better than one.

This is the cloud that was over us.


“It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there’s no one to help, tough!”

Ecclesiastes 4

So true. It will be sad if he is alone. Now that there are two of them, at least they have company. The cloud never fails to amaze us. Have a wonderful day.

Always fun to see your birds and that cloud photo is stunning! Enjoyed the quote. It's in our nature to want someone to be happy with a mate. Not sure everyone would agree with me :)

Indian Summer?
