No, furnace is fine. The fact that it's been running today kinda bites tho. I see the floor heat has kicked in too. At least my tootsies will be warm.  :rolleyes:

The tree swallows are back.  They were here last week but disappeared.  Glad they are back.

This morning we have our first Hummingbird.  Lots of white crowned sparrows too.  They know this is going to be the first of the nice weather.

Trapper Roony got the coony! The warden woke me up from a deep slumber at 3am to let me know I captured it. It's now at its final destination.

Hummingbird found the feeder tonite. Can hear a cat bird in the windbreaker but hasn't located the jelly yet.  :scratch:

House wrens arrived at the ranch this a.m. Had heard some in town a week or so ago. Need to get some spare wren houses in place. Winter was not kind to some of the older models. Otherwise they nest in my not so frequently used gas grill like last year... :scratch:
