Why, is that a pair of blue-gray gnatcatchers bopping around the back fence? Yes! Yes, it is!

I hope they stay--I'm delighted that the summer tanager pair seems to have settled in the area, since I see them every few days (and hear them rather more often)--but I don't think there's any food I could put out that they'd like. I'll just hope that my plants and the swampy area are bringing in enough wee bugs to make them happy.

Also, Kevin grilled ribs for dinner, and brought home a German chocolate cake. Alas, the fish store was out of peppermint shrimp, but I did get some sale bras (not at the fish store) so life is good. Next week I'll schlep out to Greensboro and pick up a shrimp.
