New in the Neighborhood

The fairy terns have a baby. Or two. It's hard to tell, as they move around, are up high, and we don't want to bother them TOO much with flashlight beams. I love to watch them wheel overhead in their aeronautical patterns - singly, in pairs, in trios.

A check of the chickens reveals there are now THREE of them, the two new ones ~almost~ as fat and sassy as the first. But they can't beat the original one for loud complaining!

This post is for the birds!


  1. For the birds, indeed. ENJOY the new addition.

  2. Spring has sprung! On Sunday, we saw a shama thrush pretty close up - seemed tame and looking for a handout.
