We are joyfully moving back to California at the end of the month and are busy preparing, so this is likely to be our last post (unless we see the flicker babies that the mother is caring for). The weather was nice yesterday so we had dinner outside, and we were happy that many of our bird friends came by as if to wish us farewell.

We have started a new blog, California Birds. Right now, it mostly contains photos from our trips to California, but we'll post occasionally once we get settled.

Hi warren. Nice to hear from you! That sounds fun about your friendly cardinal. It's a beautiful bird that we don't get here. We are enjoying our backyard full of birds right now - spring is early and so pleasant here.
