Two new yard birds in the last few days: a trio of brown-headed cowbirds, and an adorable little ruby-crowned kinglet. Also, a pair of sparrows that I can't quite identify but I think they're new. They refuse to turn to face me no matter how much I snap my fingers and say "Hey! Look over here!"
I hope the cowbirds were just passing through. I'd be sad to discover that brood parasites have taken up residence in the neighborhood.
Am very amused to browse my Sitemeter hits and discover a large number of people finding this blog by searching for "live flowers". I suppose it would be very disappointing to search for plain old "flowers" and find photos of dead ones by accident.
