Home construction trade

Nesting activity. Mud goes flying by. Ribbons go flying by. Leaves get transported. The building construction scene is live and healthy.
Not a worm. This was more like a slug lunch.
And yes,  I watch for exotics..... black-and-white warbler

A little higher

It was the noise that drew attention.  Face off, redbellies.  Nest area.  Eggs in nest?  Who knows,  Whatever will be will be will be.  Fingers crossed that this will be a successful.

A little low-down

A little ground snooping is very easy on the neck.  Gentle Hermy the Hermit catching crunchies.

Getting-there male goldfinch

And on our building on the fuse box one incubating mourning dove.
It's a warm spot, not too spacious, but cozy.

Right on schedule

Went downstairs to watch for robins. Instead, right into my path came the ovenbird.  Right on schedule, a spring delight. Hard to photograph, continual movement, very distinctive plodding walk.  Sweet little thing.
And there was Mrs. Robin,  home construction time. Lots of building material available.
Guardian of her turf, chasing away any other potential  homebuilders.
Our little water fountain (bath) provides nest mulch.

In the garden, Wednesday

Stop, little one!  Palm warbler.  There and gone, 2 second bird.


Stay out of the area???  You've got to be kidding.  Catering service.
Right on schedule, a towhee doing hide-and-seek. Nice surprise

There will be more images. I'm still struggling trying to deal with this new interface. Stinks!

More vegetables

Okay... so they're not all vegetables.  I'm still doing battle with this new dashboard. This is not progress. This is not user friendly. This is more trouble than necessary.  Shame on you Google!!!


I don't know what's going on. Blogspot has screwed up this site.   It's very hard to figure out how to post something.   No fun.   This was to be about eating your vegetables.  Good diet.  It's only taken me about four hours to get this far. There are more pictures, but I'm disgusted. This is supposed to be "progress". Like Hell!!!!!

I was talking with a pal yesterday about diet and the importance of protein. The robins have the right idea.

Jump rope?

Sometimes worms are yanked and abandoned. I don't know food criteria as far as robins are concerned, but sometimes the catch takes my breath away.

Sausage worm?

It's getting glugged down, slow and sure.

Good to the very last milimeter, just one worm of many for the day.

Time for breakfast. Not worms.
