Guess we won't be using the ladder anytime soon.
We used to have ceiling fans on the back porch and I kid you not, every year one or two not so bright birds would try to nest in the fans...while they were moving. I would just shake my head in disbelief. We took those down this year so I thought we were out of Birdfest 2012. I was wrong. While cleaning up the back and the side of the house we looked over and saw that something was watching us back. I really hope that the wild cats in the hood fail to notice that she's there. I would hate to think that one of those cats could just climb up the ladder to his lunch.
Also making an appearance this Spring...
We observed this little guy for awhile in the front yard. One of Clover's latest interests is the snails in the yard. She calls them her friends. She will touch the shell but if it starts to move she will scream and run away. It was in the process of charging Granny and the whole neighborhood heard her scream that it was going to get her. Maybe...if she didn't move...for like a month. We also learned an important scientific fact while observing our snail pal. Snails poop. Everyone/thing does. There was that book written about it. I guess I missed the page about the snail. He pooped in the yard. Oh the joys of Spring!
