I was using the rototiller, trying to break up the twitch grass. I've let the garden grow, unable to face the pests. Borrowing the kids' tiller, it was hard work for someone with back issues! It's sad when the twitch grass wraps itself around the blades three times. I've been recalcitrant. The raccoons simply pulled up my plants by the roots and dragged them away a couple of years ago.
Anyway, I was working hard then
I could hear the chick squawking for food.
Off I went, as I needed a break!
It was a hot afternoon and the female was out of the nest for some air. There were crows in the locale, which concerned her.
Eventually, the squawking was enough, I wasn't videotaping just taking photos at this point, and she turned glared at the chick, stretched and went back into the nest. I went back Sunday and Monday but didn't hear or see anything.
