Bad news - the bluebirds never returned to their house this spring.
(Edit: Poor observation on my part, I've just been watching Mamma and Poppa Bluebird flying up to their house and feeding the babies!)
Good news - I saw a male Downy Woodpecker, so I guess Ms. Downy Woodpecker has found a fellow.
Ms. Downy Woodpecker.
Bad news - Loki is going to take the 40 mile round trip ride to our most awesome vet tomorrow. He has a giant nipple. I've never had a cat with a giant nipple before, unless it was a kitty-momma breastfeeding (why, when seeing baby kittens or puppies breast feeding, we say, "ahhh, how cute", but when we see a baby human breast feeding, some of us get "outraged"?).
Good news - it's sunny and warm and I've got weeds to pull and pine straw to spread.
Loki sez: I've got 20 sharp pointy parts that say you'll never get me into the carrier, human!
