"The marsh, to him who enters it in a receptive mood, holds, besides mosquitoes and stagnation, melody, the mystery of unknown waters, and the sweetness of Nature undisturbed by man."

~ Charles William Beebe (1877-1962),
Log of the Sun, 1906 

One of the many children's activities during September's Country Day at Pardon Gray was making bluebird boxes.

Fifteen boxes were donated to the TLT and set up around the Preserve. By November, as Board Member Jim Spears was working on the cemetery's repairs, he spotted a visitor checking out a possible new home. Luckily, Jim had his camera at hand and got a shot of the bluebird.
