Saturday was a fun day around here as the annual MS Bike Tour passed by. While taking a few moments to watch, we noticed & heard this House Sparrow singing his happy tune. We suspect he also wanted to say thanks to all the dedicated cyclists!!
The forecast for the upcoming week is hot, hot, hot....some of the warmest temperatures we've had for a couple of years. Please make sure you & your pets have a cool spot with plenty of fresh, cool water. Check on your elderly neighbours, making sure they are okay. Look after the birds too....keep feeders clean & filled with fresh seed (a spot in the shade is good too). Try to also hang nectar feeders in the shade while keeping them cleaned & refreshed often - don't wait til the nectar is cloudy to change it. Offer some water for the birds & change it often. Mosquitoes are already an issue in many areas this year....you don't want to create another favourite spot for them with "standing" water on your property. If we all take care of each other, the week will be much more enjoyable for all!
