Hope David gets a Tony nod for this. Always great to see him prospering in the theater.

My mother had a blue heron that came faithfully. After her memorial service, the heron and it's large similar friends gathered on her roof to share in our tribute to her. It was like a Edward Gorey drawing, including some of Ted's cousins. After that the birds never returned.
