in wildlife news today...

I'm seeing signs of nest-building; mockingbirds & bluejays flying around with small twigs in their mouths. (It was a bluejay that built this very fine nest in our bamboo last year.) Also meadowlarks (without twigs) have been spotted for the first time in the yard, a couple days in a row (and we're not terribly close to a meadow.)

And some sort of butterfly migration-- they're orange & brown but not painted ladies-- is going on. They have been flying purposefully from west to east across the yard all day.

Oh, and snakes. Tony & I see a snake or 2 each day in the garden. (not scary snakes, cute little snakes) Tony say garter snakes.
