I’ve made it a point to go over to the Glen every Saturday or Sunday morning for the past couple of weeks. It’s been a real joy to watch the land wake-up to spring and to watch the changes as the weeks move forward.
Walking to the Glen I had a few things happened that signalled to me that this trip was going to be something cool. As I grew close to the park a pileated woodpecker flew directly across my path and then turned and angled towards the wood that holds the glen. A few moments later, a crow casually flew in front of me, left to right. These two things, so close together, told me to be aware this morning.
Shortly after crossing the boundary markers of the Glen, my dowsing took me off the path and stopped me at a point where, at first, I wasn’t sure why. I’ve learned that this usually means, “Look around and/or wait.” So, I did and a few moments later, spotted a box turtle tucked up under old fallen log. This has happened so often to me but it’s still a bit of magic every time it happens. I asked, “So, it’s going to be that kind of trip today?” I was rewarded with a “Yes” answer.
My dowsing took me further away from the path and then stopped again near an oak tree. I found one item (which I talk about in the video) and had just started the initial introduction to the video when the series of events began. I’ve not edited the video at all. .
I am delighted to have had this opportunity to film this. Not many people get to see this kind of bird interaction in the woods. I would not have had this encounter if the dowsing had not told me where to go, where to stop and which direction to stand. As I say in the video, I thought at first it was a hawk simply because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. There is a lot of information that occurred in between filming the video and I’ll be thinking more about this encounter I’ll have a separate post on it directly.
It was a very powerful morning.
