We have some youing blackbirds that are hanging arounnd the garden like teenagers looking for trouble. I throw the sluggy strawberries on the lawn for them, and they look so funny when they rush up to one, take a quick look over their shoulder, then stab the fruit and scuttle off into the flower beds with it.
We also have a collared dove nesting in one of the apple trees. her nest is so flimsy, but it seems to have weathered the terrific high winds we've had recently. She looks very serene sitting there!
