Two of My Favorite Guys

This past week offered us an opportunity to meet for lunch with two of Dave’s brothers and his sister. . .
John and David at Chuy's
Finding myself seated between two of my favorite guys, I couldn’t resist showing you . . .
David and his look alike. . .youngest brother John. . .aren’t they adorable!  LOL. . .
Texas, San Felipe, Stephen F Austin State Park (27)
Last weekend, we had the pleasure of look alike John, Lisa, and John’s look alike Daniel visiting us at the park. . .
Daniel riding his scooter at Stephen F Austin State Park
what a lot of fun. . .Daniel is the spitting image of his Daddy at that age!
He is a beautiful child. . .inside and out. . .and always has hugs to give. . .which makes me so happy!

On a different note. . .it’s nest building time here at the park. . .
Carolina Wren
and the Carolina Wrens are in overdrive!

They aren’t a bit shy. . .and were swooping into this exhaust vent one day last week. . .
sitting at my desk in the bedroom. . .I could hear them busily setting up housekeeping. . .

Within two days, they had quite the little collection gathered. . .
and although I feel guilty for destroying all their hard work. . .ummm. . .not a choice location guys!  Sorry. . .
We’ve taped a piece of plastic over the outside of the vent until we can get a screen. . .goodness, they are quick!

As Judy on her Travels With Emma Blog calls it, I’ve set up my bird café. . .
it’s a mix of nuts, seeds, and cracked corn. . .

the peanuts and almonds go first. . .the tufted titmice love them!

followed by the black oil sunflower seed. . .favored by the cardinals. . .

not sure the preference of this Red Breasted Nuthatch or the Carolina Chickadee. . .
but I do know that no one likes the cracked corn. . .so it gets left for the deer and raccoons. . .
oops. . .not supposed to feed the wildlife (well, except for the birds). . .
so we may need to choose a different mix next time. . .
Texas, San Felipe TX, Stephen F Austin State Park, Birds, Bluebirds
and. . .we’ve notice the bluebirds flitting about the bluebird boxes. . .
so, the plan for the weekend is to be sure those are cleaned out,
sanitized and ready to go. . .

Til next time,
Janice
