We’ve all heard how important it is to eat a diet high in roughage. Likewise, “roughaging” (spending time outdoors) is essential to our mental health. Even if it’s a settee on the porch, we need it, gotta have it. I aim to be the reason you pulled your bedding out the back door last night.

MaryJane will post a photo of the prop and its cost here along with a few details as to its condition. The first person to call the farm and talk with Brian, 208-882-6819, becomes the new owner of a little bit of herstory. Shipping will be either USPS or UPS, our choice. No returns.
Oh no! It looks as if a Cowbird has molested another bird’s nest; I had this happen too. I’m afraid this highjacking & replacement of eggs will happen here again with a Black-Capped Chickadee pair which are trying so hard to keep invaders away. But sadly, the BCC almost always lose when it comes to defending a territory or nest. I had to chase a couple of Carolina Wrens away from the Chickadee nest just the other morning. It’s no wonder so many nests are abandoned by the American song birds; it looks like exhausting work, building & then defending them!
What bird lays different size eggs???? Or are these eggs from different birds just for a beautiful photo? Here in the South, the American Robin lays pretty blue eggs.
