‘They know we’re critter friendly here,” Butch McDaniel told me as I looked out the window of the kitchen at the view of a small nature preserve. There were feeders for every sort of bird, from hummingbirds to finches, and houses hanging from trees. Priscilla’s camera perched on a tripod looking out, ready for action if a Painted or Indigo Bunting should appear.
