Look who flew in the other day and made our terra cotta planter home. After the "Hummingbird Tragedy of 2011" that happened a few months ago, I was surprised that any bird would fly through our backyard much less take up residence. Apparently, the word on the street and in the air is not as bad as I thought. Or, this little feathered friend is deaf. Either way, she chose our backyard as a landing spot to nest. I'm so excited to be redeemed in the eyes of the bird community.
In order to accomodate her every need, we have instituted a strict "no soccer playing" policy. I have also decided there will be no running, laughing, talking or general silliness to be had within 20 yards of the new nest. Carlos is to be on call 24 hours a day to handle any requests she may have for worms, sticks and turn down service.
Talk to you soon! Karin
