What a fun time! We were celebrating a belated birthday for Izzy, as well as Mother's Day. I sent grampa out to buy 6 helium balloons. My camera battery died, so my SIL took a photo for me!

They treated us! How fun!

My Mother's Day gift from the kids was a new Wood Duck nesting box! Isn't it wonderful? Wood duck box #3!
We have three pairs of Wood ducks, and I've counted three more males, if not more. They might be too close together, the boxes, but I'm limited on trees I can reach. We shall see. Daisy helped, although she was more moral support looking for a chipmunk. You can see her in this fuzzy photo. My camera lens is not autofocusing, and I was cold and tired at this point. But this is box #1. Then two and three.
The kids helped me reassemble JB's fountain. It was trying to straighten it, and it tipped over, broke the support. I had to jury rig it.
I'm having issues with Trailcam #3, as well. I broke the stand that holds it. My first Moultrie camera was terrific. The Wildgame brand (#2) had better bells and whistles, a large window to help aim it. This one isn't as great. I know we had a momma bear and cubs go by, they left the evidence.

Sunday, May 15th, we spotted a pair of bucks. They look frowsy, as they lose their winter coats. I'd love to go brush them!
Monday, May 16th, I spotted a cardinal! I haven't seen one in a year or more.
