Red and Green Week
Everything seemed to be going red and green this week. I had three sets of Red Finches hatch at the RUC. There were four nests but unfortunately I saw a snake in one on Monday night and by the time I pulled it out (yes, you read that right) the finches were gone (I was sad but I guess snakes have to eat too).
But the others all fledged and are now healthy and chirping around the cane fields.
This cute little guy (below) opened his mouth when I was taking my shot. I wonder if he was yelling at me because I couldn’t save his cousins?
Here are their nests. The first is a ‘before it’s fitted out’ shot.
And the next one is ‘after the birds have flown the coop’ shot.
I bought the nests at a town & country shop close by for under $5 each. They’re pretty cute!
Now for some green
This little guy didn’t jump on me when I took his photo – so I was pretty grateful for that!
The Lichee trees are in full fruit and they’re very red and green!
The night of the election a spider jumped in my salad (I didn’t know if the spider or Trumps win gave me a bigger fright). I didn’t put the picture here because I thought it may freak you out too much – but I did tweet it if you’re brave enough to have a look. What a waste of a delicious salad! I had to have ice cream for dinner instead.
***Have a lovely week no matter what colour yours is!***
