  1. Great blog! Nw you have to tell me which bird has moved into the maple in my front yard. The creature squawks all night!


    • Thanks Michele. Could it be a mockingbird? They are notorous for calling all hours of the day and night. As you may know, they immitate other birds. To avoid fights, many birds call from their territory to let other of their species know this is their place, keep out. The mockingbird will immitate other birds to keep everyone out. This way it will have the maple tree all to itself.


  2. its a great blog you’ve got over here Gary!
