Still here, hanging in there. The number of photos I get on the booth have gone down from up to 10.000 a day to a mere 1.300. But everything seems ok in the yard. I hear and see Bluebirds, I hear the Redbellied Woodpeckers, the Cardinals, the Nuthatches. They are just not coming to the yard in big numbers right now. But I know they will be back. A Downy Woodpecker has taken residence in the Bluebird house, just like last year. It goes to bed at seven and gets up at seven. This blog might slow down a bit after the summer bonanza, but I am determined :) I hope everybody is having a good week so far despite so many issues to be upset about. Birds and the nature around me are a soothing reminder of my own mortality. And the miracle and joy of being alive. Sleep tight.
