I ordered that book a few days ago, Bonnie. How do you like it?

veggies
we like are high in nutrition and low in defense...animals will seek

It is the white crowned sparrows!  I finally caught 2 of them red-
handed
(beaked?) today.  They've never done this before. Wonder why after 10
years they decided they needed greens in their diet???  They have
plenty
of bird seed.  Now to figure out how to cover things to keep them
out so
my plants can grow!

We have lots of cats in the area. Besides the 4 rescues that are
indoors, there are at least 4 ferals stopping by to eat in the shed.
We also have rabbits. They're very good at making themselves
invisible
unless you see them move. I've nearly stepped on them without seeing
them.

I've never seen a rabbit here.  Can't imagine they'd survive the
neighborhood cats.
Hummm about the sparrows....
