Yes the garage has issues for sure. Broken and sunk concrete makes it impossible to close the door tight. In addition the service door was put in 1/2 ass. It's all on a list to be fixed but the list might be longer than my life-span.   :rotflmao:

Squirrels bored thru a plastic garbage can lid when I stored ear corn outside. Put the cat food in a metal garbage can here too. Dadgum varmints!  :angry:

Grape jelly supply getting tight. None of the cheap stuff locally at the grocery store or DG. Even Glenn World in Waseca was out yesterday. Might have to drive to Cold Spring for the economy size.  :scratch:

The squirrels chewed through my plastic one too years ago so I got a small galvanized garbage can.  It almost holds a 40 lb bag of seeds.  I see squirrels on the can and then I know the feeder is empty.

I'm assuming that the hens are on eggs, but the roosters are coming in.

Second nest of robins in the back yard.  The first time all the eggs fell out except one.

Four robins hatched in this nest.  They are growing fast.

Fun night listening to & watching the backyard birds from the patio. Gorgeous evening, very few bugs & dead still again so you hear everything. Appears the little wrens in the nesting box by the garden are leaving it, judging by the scolding I get & sounds coming from the bushes. I made sure to slip roony's address in the birdhouse 1st. Also getting scolded by the orchard orioles coming to the jelly feeder. Sheep are calling it quits for tonight, heading back to the lot area for the day. The hummingbirds figured out I'd cleaned & restocked their feeders. No complaints from them just the sound of those little wings beating for all they're worth as the sun is down. Getting their last licks in until morning while the fireflies are getting warmed up.  :happy1:

Our favorites the tree swallows left the bird house the other day.  With the babies grown it was full of activity here until they left.
