Jay quietly slipped out the door this morning when I was still half-asleep and returned a few moments later. Upon his return, I asked him where he went and he shared with me that last night a small colorful bird came to rest for its final moments on our porch and then died. Jay found the bird in the morning, took its body twenty feet away to the edge of the forest, covered it with half a coconut and said a few final words. It’s sweet and refreshing to see a full-grown male and occasional carnivore take a few moments to respect and value a small life.
