I need friends and family members to be especially careful for awhile.
The mockingbird and blue jay are back. Remember them from around Halloween a few years back?
The mockingbird isn't tapping at the window -- yet -- but he's scouting something. His blue jay sidekick is building a nest in the ligustrum beside the front porch. It's bound to attract the neighborhood feral cats who just love to gnosh on baby birds and leave a bloody mess beneath.
Anyway, since I was raised by a somewhat superstitious southern mother, I'm not letting a bird come into this house, so there's not going to be a death. But, if you would all just use extra caution until I get this behind me, I'd be ever so appreciative.
