In Between the Rain Drops...
When I arrived in the lower gardens, our friends were all in their favorite areas. Tree swallows in first nestbox, house wrens in second box, and house wrens in garden nestbox around the corner. Yellow warblers, catbirds, robins, cardinals, orioles and goldfinches were busy flitting about, singing and feeding babies. Saw this young rabbit in a field of clover looking very wet, but happily eating it's grass.
In the upper garden, it looks as though the bluebirds have fledged as the box has the tell-tale stick poking out of the hole and the house wren sitting atop it. This same thing happened last year. The wren took over the house when the bluebirds were done. (At least we hope they were done). Will have to keep an eye out for the young bluebirds.
It started to rain again and had to head for the hills before my camera and binoculars got wrecked.
