These were the only two shots that weren't too blurry. At 75mph I kept my eyes on the road and tried to guess where to point the camera and just kept clicking. Finally I just decided to put the camera down and enjoy the view. On another note, remember this little fellow that kept hanging around the birdhouse while the cactus wrens were moving in?
He pulled their nest out! While he committed the crime, all of the other sparrows were diving to catch the nesting material for their own nests. The cactus wrens came back a while later and discovered what had happened. I could almost see the confusion and upset in their faces. They started to rebuild immediately. The little sparrow with the big courage is still hanging around all day long, chirping, talking, calling. I'm not sure who is going to end up in there.
This morning I found that the cactus wren had walked into my house and made her way into the kitchen. I mentioned before that they are not nervous birds, and she quite calmly inspected the sink, table, chairs, my birds, and managed to poop on my couch. After a few minutes, she flitted her way back outside and I shut the door.
OH! One of the houses is in escrow!!! A 30 DAY ESCROW!
