Glad you are back safe and sound, pwayfarer. c.i.'s photos of doors, arches, and narrow streets in Malta are impressive for his eye for architectural detail. We look foward to seeing your photos and running commentary about your reactions and feelings to the place.

Which also means Craven's birthday is rapidly approaching. Is he a twin-twin to pwayfarer or goaway?

It's our first long weekend of the summer right now.

It is not summery here Evil or Very Mad

I had to turn the furnace temp back up a bit yesterday - the house was just too cold to sleep comfortably.

Send it on up, danon.

I know I'll be fussing about the temps in a few weeks - once it gets to 100 F plus I get mighty cranky - but this is a bit too brisk for the second half of May.

Neighbours across the street are building some frames for their basement out front. The fellas have put leggings on, under their shorts - and have sweaters and windbreakers over their t-shirts. They were a bit too optimistic.

Danon, we could use some more degrees- nights are very cool.
LOL- the kids never bother me- it is admin work which is taking up so much time and energy.

Teeny, in the Sierras during last summer, there were numerous forest fires that have impacted many birds species. The concern now is for the forest service to not take dead trees from the inflicted areas because of the avian ecosystem.

Selectively take the big dead trees, and it will impact a whole host of woodpeckers, including hairy and white-headed and even black-backed woodpeckers. The trees attract insects that provide food for the woodpeckers, and sites where they can excavate nesting cavities, which, in turn, provide homes for other birds, such as mountain bluebirds.

So far I haven't heard or seen the birds during the Spring season, but during the summer months, the sound of woodpeckers foraging for food can be heard echoing through the forest. Sounds so neat!

I Just love birding stories. I'm really new at it but learning. I would love to install a hummingbird feeder but the pidgeons and seagulls would take it over! I'm 11 stories high and nothing but crows, gulls and pidgeons are around here. Still, they're birds and I love them too!

There's plenty of hummingbirds though, and i've noticed smaller wrens beginning to nest on the property trees, plus a Robbin built a nest on one of the pine tree branches from across the road! Good news!

pwayfarer, nature is marvelous! Smile)

Teeny, you live by the water! Nothing compares to the sound of the ocean, seagulls, quiet foggy days disturbed only by the sound of an occasional tug boat whistle - and clean air riding soflty on the jet stream!

Driving the Great Highway in SF, and leisurely scenic excursions along the Pacific North Coast <Hwy 101> and visiting small townships and villages along the way... Smile

The Sierras are beautiful though, and right now I'm preparing to refill the Hummingbird feeders, trim lawns, prune decorative shrubs near the house, enjoying the warm sunshine. I'm staying as far away from my office and housework today, but wanted to say hi and wish you and all the wildclickers a marvelous day!

<with Danon and pwayfarer - sending warm weather to ehBeth and UL>

This morning I had to dig out some clothes I had already put away for the Summer. Tweed jacket, warm trousers, etc. It's bloody COLD here for May.

Just got back from Long Island. It was as cold there as it is here, but at least the party didn't get rained on. Great to be with family.
Clinking in.
