“If we thought we were family in season one, it’s nothing compared to season two” - Tina Desai “I’m loving it. I feel like home. I was missing everybody” - Miguel Silveste “Tody is actually incredible. We joke that he has season-one energy. He’s not as tired as the rest of us, which is so great because he can come in and put a smile on all of our faces, immeadiately” - Jamie Clayton “The eight of us are really tight. We can be grumpy with each other in the morning. We can be completely elated, and I think that’s an amazing thing that we can accept all those things about ourselves.“ - Tuppence Middleton “You know, there’s this cliché thing of, ‘Oh, we’re a family.'but it feels more than just being friends. It seems more than that, because we share a lot of raw moments.” - Toby Onwumere “There’s something about this year that was so massive and so epic. It feels like the harder the hill to climb, the more nostalgic you are once you get to the other side of it.” - Brian J. Smith “Whenever I got lonely, they were there for me. And I was there for them.” - Doona Bae “When we can just look at each other and have that smile on our faces because we know exactly how it felt like, this is what I love.” - Max Riemelt.
June 10, 2017 - Grey-headed Tody-Flycatcher or Yellow-lored Tody-Flycatcher (Todirostrum poliocephalum)
These small tyrant-flycatchers are found in southeastern Brazil. They eat insects, including beetles, ants, flies, moths, and butterflies, foraging in dense vegetation and snapping their prey from underneath leaves. Little is known about their breeding and nesting behaviors, but they are thought to be monogamous. They are often seen in pairs or small groups and rarely join mixed-species flocks.
In addition to Shabbat, tody is Tu B’Shevat—The New Year for Trees!
Tu B’Shevat is four months after the New Year of the Hebrew calendar, as it takes this long for the soil to be nurtured by the seasonal rain. Observations include partaking in the fruit of the Holy Land, that is figs, dates, olives, pomegranates, and grapes.
