Back from Capistrano?

So soon? No, I don't think so. They've never left. (See the posts titled "Hello?" and "Today was the day," below.)

I had thought that the little guys had completely abandoned their nest, but apparently they have been coming back at the same time every evening for a little reunion. They don't go into the nest, but cluster together for a few minutes on the roof over it. Then they are off again.

This is a pretty bad picture justified only by "newsworthy" content. It was taken through the glass of my kitchen window. When I pushed the shutter button there were five of the hyperactive little buggers. As you can see only three stuck around to be posterity-ized. They are really neat little birds and I like having them around.

Looks like a good picture to me. You must have a lot better camera than my Walmart special at $60.00

Hey,man. You aren't laying out there dead in the woodpile, being eaten by possums , are you?

No. No possums (which we don't have)! Just got side-tracked for a while. All is well. Thanks for checking!
