  •  Last year the local Bewick's Wrens (8+ / 0-)

    nested in the bow of the neighbor's canoe, which was stored upside down in the side of their yard. Unfortunately, the neighbors deployed the canoe before the eggs hatched.

    I came for the politics and stayed for the science.

    •  Oh, that was an unfortunate choice of shelter. (7+ / 0-)

      I have used my upside down canoe for shelter in a few rain and hail storms. It was comforting and felt safe through the duration of the chaos.

      I love nature, science and my dogs.

        and nicely quieted that &^%$### thing

        how'd I miss all this foofooforrall?

        oh called. grrr

        did have a good hangout in the slough, saw a school of big Mullet that would all freak and splash..maybe 20-30 I guess 12-18" whatever they were, trapped in a salt marsh until next high tide.maybe something was after them cause they would freak, or maybe they were feeding on littlerfish, but when a Cattle Egret drifted just over they made a couple dozen big holes in the water and scared the coots too. Egret kept on gliding.
        Saw couple of sparrows who I can't id, but they posed...waiting for the film to come back..

        also a Cassin's Kingbird and a pair of Shovelers with all the usual slough birds.

        This machine kills Fascists.
