Great Power Hour, awesome theme. Thanks Tim!
Sorry I haven’t participated on this site lately. There’s been too much other stuff to get done, but I’m making progress. Maybe I’ll become a regular again one of these months.
I’m pleased to report the backyard has hosted several successful nests: three or four nests of bluebirds, at least two of phoebes, and one of lesser goldfinches. (Also a continuous production of black-throat sparrows, and nuthatches.) Today I spotted a downy woodpecker, Nuthall’s woodpecker, and heard from the colony of acorn woodpeckers and a belted kingfisher. And my front lawn is now home to about a thousand baby oaks. ( I’m not going to keep them all.) The toyon berries I scattered never sprouted, though. I guess the birds got to them first. Next time the berries get planted in pots and kept inside until they are sprouts with leaves.
