Even though Mrs. Phoebe built a nest, I hadn't seen any evidence of a Mr. in the picture, and she wasn't sitting on the nest at all. However, now we have a family. This is a crummy picture, but she's very shy of me getting close enough to the window to use the camera. This at least proves she's sitting on eggs.

In other news: Again, it's all other news. I did more bookkeeping. I edited all afternoon, and I had a meeting this evening.

Spring has definitely sprung here. Still a touch of winter yesterday with frost on the window though

Ah, Spring! I'm watching the orioles visit our feeder these days. The Mrs. has had nest building materials in her beak, but I can't spy the nest. I guess that is the point, right? At the farm, the barn swallows are busy as well. Such a fun time of year!

Ann- We are getting close- the leaves are opening more and more

Lin- Love swallows- had one check out our deck, but it didn't stay
