Birthday musings, and exciting Moonshadow news!

Moonshadow's 15th Birthday

Today 15 years ago our dream became a reality and Moonshadow was born. A life-changing day!

Moonshadow Gift shop

We had birthdays in Observatory, Table View, and Swellendam, and I'm surprised at how many times it has rained, like today. And on the rainy birthdays always an abundance of birds. When Moonshadow moved from Observatory to Table View and re-opened on our birthday, we had dozens of red finches entertaining us by dancing in the torrential rain. Today Moonshadow's rainy garden in Swellendam is alive with scores of Common Waxbills (Estrilda Astrild), Cape White Eyes (Zosterops Virens), pigeons, yellow finches and a sunbird.
