I laughed, but the tables soon turned. When I entered another outbuilding, a large whitish raptor flew out of a hole in the wall. I jumped, too. I wish I had been more prepared so I could have gotten a picture of that magnificent bird. The only picture I have is in my mind. The bird flew away so quickly that I was unable to ascertain its species. I only know that it was big and beautiful.
Darn. I hate missed opportunities. Hopefully, Ill be more on the ball next time.
