Bedtime ritual, interrupted

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:


Papa, standing guard


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.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
