Hey peeps, I know most of you are animal lovers so I wanted to tell ya what happened. Today the landscapers trimmed all our palm trees and did the other plants etc. Hubby came home and checked out their work and he saw a baby bird on the ground. I just about panicked. The bird was A-OK and could almost fly. The nest was still in the palm tree BUT the friggin palm tree is TALL. Im afraid of heights too. So I run around the yard trying to catch the little stinker, finally get him, put him in a box, hubby held the box while I climbed up higher than I ever have climbed before. My knees were knocking. Hubby handed me the stinker and I put him back in the nest. WHEW. (fyi, its a myth that you cant put a bird back in the nest, blah blah). So he is up there all cozy now. Me...Im friggin still shaking. omg. I hope I dont have to do that again.

Cookie - I love your baby bird story. I have one too.

A few years ago we watched a dove sit in a nest in one of our trees until the eggs hatched. A week or so later the 2 chicks flew down from the nest and rested on our bench. They were so plump and adorable.

Then, suddenly, I noticed this long 5-6' snake lerch down from over the fence towards the chicks. Dh grabbed a shovel and I grabbed my camera. I took a photo of the snake when it retreated into the hedge. I downloaded the photo because I wanted to see a larger image and I could NOT see the snake in the hedge. That's how well they blend into the foilage.

I always used to prune the hedges by hand with long and short clippers. Now, I use






Chop ... Chop. No snakes allowed in my yard. Hope your little chick is okay. Muahs
