Back yard nature

Recommended Posts

Last night while we were out eating (we usually eat out in the patio during the summer), we discovered that a dove has made her nest in a corner of our patio under the rafters. Neat to be able to keep an eye on her.

We also have hummingbird feeder in the yard, so we get to watch the hummers come and go. They aren't very nice to each other. They get very territorial over the feeder. Tonight there were 2 who were having a stand off - on a telephoe wire above the feeder about a meter apart staring each other down. They sat there about 5 mintues with no change, finally had a little dust up, one went down to feed, the back to the wire about 3 meters apart.

We also have a mouse (possible a small rat, but my wife says, "It IS a MOUSE!") that runs along the fence in the back yard. My mother hated mice. Last weekend while she was here for dinner, it ran the wall a couple of times, but my mom's back was to the wall, so she never saw it. My wife and I just smiled at each other.
