In between our apartment and the next over is a small space that some birds which may be Grackles have made a nest. There is also a dead bird hanging part-way out of the crack to get to the nest, which was there when we moved in. Yuck.
On a side note, we've had record breaking weather here. It reached the 90 degrees F yesterday, and might again today. HOT!!! Luckily, thunder clouds are appearing on the horizon, so maybe we'll get some rain. Or, maybe the lightning will start fires. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Oh, and a yellow jacket got into the house yesterday through the screen door. We managed to trap it between the screen and one of the windows, but since we don't have a fly swatter, decided to leave it there and not open the window to keep it out of the house. This morning, it had somehow found a crack or something, and is now on the (vaulted) ceiling. I don't know where it crawled through, but it's the same bee. Hopefully it will go back to the window, and not decide to walk around on the floor. They do that sometimes, and I like to walk around bare foot.
Oh! Birdie's back! No friends, and it just moved to the roof to chirp. It caught on. Oh well.
