It's A Rough Day For Wildlife In These Parts
First a baby bird falls out of its nest onto our deck, and then a snake gets caught in the bird-netting on our strawberries. The baby bird actually fell out of the nest while I was on the deck. Mama followed it down and they chatted for a bit until she flew off. I retreated so as not to disturb them. She seems to be keeping an eye on him; I hope she can keep him safe from the neighborhood cats and from the old owl until he can fly.
Just a little bit ago J asked if I wanted to see a snake and showed me this guy, who at the time was caught in the netting over our strawberries.
