The neighbor mowed yesterday, so once again the odor of fresh cut grass is strong on the morning air.
Yesterday I walked up on a parakeet on the drive looking for seeds. When I went in and got a handful it started eating out of my hand. It wouldn’t let me grab it though. It was a pretty little bird though. I’m not sure where it may of come from… Another victim of Harvey evidently.
I can hear quite a few birds off in the woods. I can’t be certain of the identity of most. But I must say the hummingbirds are trickling in. It seems there are more each day fighting over the control of the feeders. I did manage to find two new feeders at HEB. It’s nice that in all the years I’ve been buying them the price has only increased $1. And even with the price increase, it’s half what everyone else charges for the same feeder.
The one thing I haven’t seen since before the storm is the Mississippi Kite. I did see our neighborhood Crested Caracara. I hadn’t seen one all summer though in past years they were a regular sight.
Time to fix breakfast… And get another cup of muses.
