Little friends on my orange tree.
So much for fresh dill in my tuna and on my salmon. I'd rather have the butterflies anyway.

A Mourning Dove has nested in the hanging basket on our front poarch. We have placed a cardboard blind between the nest and the door we use to enter and exit the house. Momma Bird is not flying away every time we open the door.
A vulture doing what vultures do. An unfortunate rabbit was hit by a car and the vulture was "cleaning up." Vultures are amazing. They can eat spoiled meat and not get sick. Scientists are studying them to find out why/how to try to help people not get sick when spoiled meat is consumed. Vultures also have black feet. However, their urine is so acidic that it turns their legs/feet white with a bleaching effect. This is to kill germs they pick up from the carrior they land on.

One of our State birds has made a nest in the confederate jasmine near our door. This is what we found in the nest. We will be using the rear door for a week or so....
Good Luck, Little one.
Box Turtle: This little "guy" was trying to cross the street. We helped him out of the way of cars and moved him in the direction that his nose was pointed. (Not backward: he would only try to recross.)
