Bad Bird Day
Last Thur. April 22 was a bad day in the bird world around here, when I went out to take the garbage and green carts out for collection I saw what looked like someone had dropped an Easter egg candy on the driveway. When I reached to pick it up this is what I found, and it split apart. Most of the contents had drained out a hole in the bottom. How sad for the birds, I've been watching chickadees, stellar jays and robins building nests for awhile now, but I guess this one didn't make it. I don't know if it was victim to wind, another prey or some other disaster, but the results are a sad conclusion.
A little later in the day was much nicer although noisy, see the lilac photos I took.
