It was warm yesterday evening, and we sat outside, watching the sun go down. We had company; a busyness of chickadees, a towhee, a wren, swallows far overhead, mosquitos around our ankles, and a family of house finches:

On a lower branch, checking out those intruders; is it safe to go down for our baths?
They waited until we had gone inside, then they brought the kids down for a quick dip before bed. .
