Ziggy's arrival was Swift and unexpected. I knew at some point he would show up within a few days, but he flew past me, close enough to hear the wings, and then perched a short distance in front of me. It was like he remembered me and was excited to say hello. I stood and watched him while he sat and watch me. After our brief hello, he flew to the fountain, took a well-needed bath after the long flight, and then prepared for his three month stay. I know many of you have heard this story last year, but to me it seems like it was just yesterday.
This was one of many visits to the fountain of his dreams. Sometimes he would visit it several times a day. This year some changes have been made to his fountain, with improvements that I'm sure he'll enjoy.
