2.5 weeks & growing

cuter by the minute

but it will stop eventually - they're chickens

alerted to situation by outraged chickadee; it isn't even his nest. 

Snake-ectomy successful; although it was of a full snake from an empty bluebird nest
Triumphant photo-op omitted in preference for quick release of pissed off black rat snake
Afterwards, chickadee, blue-gray gnatcatcher & prothonotary warbler all stood nearby & rattled off their opinions - perhaps complaining that I hadn't gotten there quick enough.

returning to his office after a winter's rest

same time, same place, same red bellied water snake
I would say bigger than ever

celebrating a job well done

with CHICKS!

let the cooing begin
