Yep.....but I clean first. I call it cleaning therapy as I always miss them.
It's fun having them here...each year is easier. The big kids can swim so that makes it much simpler.
We are having a high heat index which makes it tough. Hopefully that will break and maybe we can go to the Zoo on Tuesday if so.
We will be swimming soon.

Can't say I am bored!

I hope Scootch is OK.

I'm doing much needed yard work and looking forward to being a docent around the nests of Black-crowned Night Herons!



Last spring the USPS ordered the nest trees cut back because the birds were defecating on the USPS trucks parked near the trees. This was illegal on two counts: It is against Federal law to interfere in any way with federally protected migratory birds. The trees belong to the city of Oakland, not USPS, and it is illegal for anyone else to trim them.

Sadly, many babies fell from the trees. We brought them to International Bird Rescue in Fairfield. Sadly, the one I brought there died of traumatic brain injury. I made many visits to the trees last year. This year, Audubon will be involved and I'll work with them.

Thank you beans for your efforts to help these magnificent birds. It is so painful to see such little concern for their welfare by USPS, and that it cost some of the birds their lives. It is ironic that USPS is a Federal agency involved in violation of a Federal law.... Great to see you beans and thanks for updating us on this issue!

Thank you Beans for being a caretaker for these Great Blue Herons. They sure need an advocate. I am sad the one you took passed on.
with love,
carolyn

I did tell you Bleu, my golden, is named after the Great Blue Heron, right?
