I was out on the deck with some elf duties yesterday.
In addition to the sawing noise, the small wood pieces made a clicking sound as I sawed back and forth.
The saw, against the plastic mitre box, also made a strange squeak.
Then I heard this weird noise. I looked across the Alsea River and saw the Great Blue Heron in the field.
I could barely see him because he blended in so well with the ground.
But I knew it was him that made the noise. The heron’s call is really odd and I knew he was talking to my mitre box. hahaha
