The Mockingbird nest is empty. I can hear the shrill call of the baby birds; they are hidden somewhere in the Mesquite trees or in the knee-high grass.
Now we have a Mallard hen hanging out underneath a larger Italian Stone Pine tree. Maybe she is nesting. Today is Day 1 on her watch, so we’ll see.
