"Hey, Bill?"

"Yeah, Deke?"

"I just peed."

"Thanks, my feet were a little cold."

A Scottish Osprey. Note how their unique wing structure allows them to pull themselves out of the water.

We have 4 baby barn swallows sitting on a dowel perch suspended from the roof of our front porch. There were 5 (sob), but only 4 returned after their first flight. On fledging day (Sunday) there were 15 babies in total sitting on our gutter, garage window crown, and front porch perch.

A single pair arrived about 6 years ago and nested under the roof of our porch. They returned with others (probably paired offspring) and the number has grown each year. They appear to work together to feed all the young - there will be a flurry of activity in the early evening with at least 8-10 adults feeding the nestlings in the porch, and then they disappear - I assume to feed the babies in other nests around the property.

It impresses me beyond words that they migrate to Central or South America every fall and then return to our tiny front porch reliably each May.

bye bye bugs!

Yep, they're the best. Plus the bats - we finally have a couple this year.
There were quite a few in the first few years we were here; then the big bat die-off; and finally we see a few in the dusk, before it's full dark but later than any birds fly.

We stay out of their way and are thankful they've come back.

The lake I go to in the Poconos used to have lots of bats. This year, I saw one. :(
