The baby House Finches are getting bigger! I don't want to disturb the nest, so I very carefully take photos by getting up on a chair and reaching up in the general direction and snap away...so I don't at all take the time to focus or anything. In fact, the first time I did this I had no idea the nest was full of eggs until I looked on the computer later! And today when I looked at these photos I saw how big the little birds are getting- adorable beaks!! I'll look again in another week. In other news, the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act got assigned a proposition number- it will be Prop 2!!! So vote YES on Prop 2 in November! And don't worry...I'll remind all my blog readers!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cute, cute cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Photo from last week- when they were just fuzz balls- and earlier, when they were just eggs!
Ah, the simple pleasures of being a donkey.
Plotting their next move.
"Helping" me clean the pasture. Always a BIG help.
Paco is getting pretty good at picking up the pitchfork!
And now he tries his hand ...er, mouth...at moving the wheelbarrow!
When all else fails, just dump the thing over!
I love my Boulder, even if he gets me up in the middle of the night. More than once.
He's quite smug about the fact that he CAN get me up several times during the night!
