NEWS ALERT: Spring around corner



Although it is supposed to be colder for a little while, the housing market finally appears to be heating up.

   I saw a sparrow checking out the bedraggled little chickadee box in the back yard.

   The bird was joined briefly by another sparrow, who I am thinking was a female becausSparrow2e she had paint color samples and a measuring tape.

   I am guessing the birds might be house sparrows, but cannot for the life of me figure out how they got their name.
   By the way, another prospective renter showed up and was immediately given the boot -- a little Carolina wren.
   Sometimes you really wish you could choose your neighbors.
