Edgar Follows Us

Day 13

And he is! Just before noon, there is Edgar fussing and croaking and strutting around. We are ecstatic. Nancy has raised birds, and she reminds us that baby birds are quickly imprinted by the first thing they see when their eyes open. Whatever that is becomes their “mother,” and they follow it relentlessly. Perhaps Edgar’s first visual impression was a human. It’s a bit of a leap to say Edgar thinks he is a person, but it’s tempting to suppose that he does!
