Yes, I know I should be out triking but I ended up with a stomach bug this morning.  It's the first beautiful day we've had in a month and I had planned a 30+ mile ride.  There's always tomorrow.   Thanks to all the people who have donated to the kick kids' cancer fundraiser.  Donations will be accepted throughout the month.  I'm still at 105 miles but I'll hit 250 miles and hopefully more before the end of the month.

 

I have two crops of a single photo for you today of a Carolina wren sitting on her nest.  She got used to Linda and I walking by and stopped leaving the nest every time we opened the door after about a week.  The flower pot is slightly angled and attached to the side of our house.  Unfortunately (or fortunately), the eggs were not viable.  She had been sitting on the nest more than 16 days when the heavy rain storm hit on Wednesday and filled the flower pot with water.   If there had been chicks they would have drowned.  Maybe next time.

 

enjoy

Dan
