know this is a newsletter about dancing, but there is so much wildlife happening here this summer, I can’t stand it!
1. Hummingbirds in the courtyard.
For the past month we have been watching hummingbird parents fly in and out of the nest they built, to sit on their eggs.
Recently the eggs cracked open and now the parents swoop in every half hour or so to feed the baby birds, whose beaks point straight up into the sky. The babies open up their beaks and urgently reach when the mother or the father fly in to feed.
The nest the hummingbirds built is stunning: there are bits of flower petals — yellow and purple — mixed in with the weeds and the grass.
2. Coyotes howling, wild turkey’s fighting, deer feasting, last summer the sighting of a moose (not this summer though, at least not yet), bunnies hopping, bob cats prowling, foxes darting, ravens roosting,
3. AND my most favorite moment of all (I'm soooooo jealous I missed it):
