This cute finch was showing off the other day…(click on photos for more detail.)
He was doing all kinds of acrobatics up in the tree…for another finch. I thought it might be some sort of mating ritual but I think they were both males (although I’m no finch expert) so maybe it was a territorial thing or maybe he was just having a good time.
At any rate, the other one seemed totally unimpressed.
It rained here on Friday night and Saturday and our internet got knocked out. I’m now sitting in a coffeehouse on Sunday night because I couldn’t take it anymore…it’s a good thing it doesn’t rain here often because, when it does, either our phone or internet frequently go out. CenturyLink is now “waiting for parts” to come in. I feel bad for all the kids in our neighborhood who might have put off their homework until Sunday night and need the internet to get it done…or people who had to get some work done before Monday…
