There’s a monster in our closet.

Last week when we were on vacation, Kristi had to leave early for work. The last night I was there in the bedroom by myself and I heard a noise. When I checked, there was a monster. Friendly though, it kept me company the rest of the night. 

This weekend at home, just before morning, I heard a noise coming from our bedroom closet. Luckily I had set up a motion activated tripod. I had a feeling…

Here’s a shot right before that small bird took flight. Glad we set up that trail camera.

We caught up with that bird again on the beach. It doesn’t seem to be able to fly for long periods of time due to it’s aerodynamics.

We spotted a rare one on Saturday, looked to be about a year old and very cute.
