We were quite busy today. We got a lot of work done on the trench across the yard to the 2 shipping containers. I did some study, and some physical exercise. I also made a trip into town. I also took 135 photographs!


So which photo did I choose to put here? The first one that I took this morning when I was having breakfast in the back yard!

This is a scrub wren. He (or she) is one of our favourite birds. They have real personalities and their behaviour is so much more interesting than the more common blue wren. They aggressively search for food, lifting and throwing things around, turning leaves and raking through debris. The blue wrens just seem to peck. There are 2 scrub wrens in the yard at the moment. We think they chased their teenage child away just last week! This means they might be nesting again.
