No quilting today, we are getting ready for our short trip to Iowa. I decided to mow the yard again, and while I was out front the Trugreen guy came and did the bushes and trees. He asked me if I knew that I had some baby birds in the crepe myrtle by the driveway. I had no idea, and had just a few days ago been pulling the low branches off it, and would have gone up higher if I had had clippers on me. I'm glad I didn't, I probably would have hurt these babies. I had my husband bring me a ladder, so I could get above them and take pictures, but in my excitement, I guess I forgot the rule of halfway down for the macro and then pause. This is the best I can do until I get back though, as I don't want to disturb them anymore. I have seen mama, and I can't tell if she is a dove or a mockingbird, as she seems from a distance to be the color of a dove who has been around, but has a tail like a mockingbird. Sorry the pictures aren't better, I think there are 3 of them, and they seem to be hungry little critters. This kind of critter I don't mind, but the neighbor came by, and he said he had a black snake go in his house when he opened the door, and then luckily came back out and ran in the bushes. He thinks its a rat snake, so hopefully, he will get the rat I saw last weekend.
