Out of My Rear Window 4/17/11
Yesterday was very windy and rainy, but, nothing like was experienced down South. The only thing that happened around here is that the little hanging bird waterer that you see on the lower right of the picture swung wildly in the wind, dumping all of its water in the process. It's still windy today, so I'll wait until tomorrow to refill it. If you plan to get one, it might be a good idea to have a regular bird bath handy also.
There were a couple of different visitors to the feeders this week. This mallard pair has, I think, been here before. Every Spring, they decide that the water-filled cover of my neighbor's pool would make a great swimming hole, and decide to settle in. Who wouldn't, with water and food so close together.
