We have hawks and sparrows and goldfinches and robins and bluebirds and purple finches. I want wrens and cardinals and titmouse and other song birds. I also want straight hair that isn't frizzy, as long as we're wishing.
The good news is, this morning I heard a wren in my yard! I grabbed the camera and learned a lesson.
Wrens are fast. I had my fast lens on, but it was no match for this guy.
Photo is blurry, but I was so thrilled with the sighting, I had to post it!
We have several families of robins. These moms are so busy, constantly bringing worms to a nest full of squawking babies.
everybody in the pool!!

The other mama robin.
This is a bad guy. European house sparrow
Well, guess what?? I called Julie, the number you call to have the utilities marked in the yard before you dig. The utilities run right thru where I want my deer bed. So, now what? I have to figure out if I can still plant here, just not put a tree where the lines are. I remember the day they put these lines in. They wanted to go right down the middle of the yard, but the neighbor guy came out and said, you better make them move those to the side, you might want to plant there.
Great. Thanks, neighbor.
But you can see the progress the RoundUp is making. I will not be stopped! I will figure this out!
