Here are some photos of the birds and recent neighborhood sights.
The finches were flocking to the feeder, as usual. They like to sit on Mom's spinner :3 The turtledoves came for breakfast, too.
The azaleas and pansies were so pretty a few days ago! The heat this past week was pretty hard on them, though. A friend gave us some purple iris to plant, and they are looking well :)
The bluebird is guarding his house in the backyard. The baby robin that we discovered last night hopped past the door, paused and looked up at me and "chirped!" this morning. So cute :3
In the front yard, the mockingbird was singing, mimicking seagulls, crows, killdeer, and all sorts of things. hehe! We also have a friendly song sparrow who likes to sit on the wire and say good morning :)
The skies today are cool grey, but here are some other recent views of the sky.
