A Different Take on Home

I'd always thought about home from a human perspective but a recent hike -- that seems too generous -- a recent jaunt through the Steigerwald Lake Wildlife Refuge, provided a different perspective on home. This wasn't just a wildlife refuge, it was a home for the deer, duck, and wonderful songbirds.

The Steigerwald Lake Wildlife Refuge has been described as a birder's paradise; over 200 species of birds have called this wildlife refuge home at some point. Beautiful meadows and wetlands weave through thick oak trees and art pieces celebrating nature.
