    We have two Robin nests this year. One one the front porch and one on the back porch. The one on the back porch is on top of a photocell light. Sort of a built in incubator. There are three baby birds in that one.

    The one out front has a parent that flies away every time we go near the door. I'm surprised these guys made it. Got three in that one too.

    I'm wondering if the cool wet spring has anything to do with the population explosion. Birds like global cooling here.

    Our cat Daisy (see pet thread on her current issue) likes to have me open the door every morning and take a little look around. The robin is pretty excited about that whole situation. Yep, the sun is up about 5am these days and the robins are happy to tell you about it. I live in an old house and the walls are quite thick. Most outside noises stay outside.

    Daisy is in a tuna phase right now. She has managed to kill a bat and a half dozen mice or so over the years. She is attracted to the movement of boids and makes a starnge mouth movement when observing them out the window.

    I love the birds saveliberty.

    This season we've been hearing some new birds in the woods behind my house. I haven't seen any new as of yet, but just yesterday I saw the most beautiful red cardinal. I'm telling you ... it was the reddest one I've ever seen. It was just beautiful!

    Inside my two Society Finches are parenting three newly hatched babies. They are so tiny and so cute!

    The birds that drive me crazy are the damn crows! I swear, they hang out in my back yard and CAW as loud as they can during the early hours of the morning. It's times like that when I wished I had a BB gun or a sling shot.

    I have a new family of hedgehogs this year. I'm very excited about it. I've named them. LOL.
