Meet Mama Birdie (Papa is on the lookout). They moved back in last week. Ben had knocked down their nest while power washing the porch last weekend, but these two didn’t take long to rebuild. We have a perfect view of the nest from our living room window.

And finally, a picture of Punxsutawney Phil’s cousin. He moved in two years ago. We thought we were rid of him last year, but he must have decided that under our front porch made a better home than under the barn! We’re hoping to find a trap somewhere soon since Animal control told us we had to “dispose” of him ourselves. WE’ll have to do something soon so I can get my garden started.
