Snakes and Star Charts

Volume 18 Issue 2, February 2021

What's New in February?

As the seasons start to change and the spring birds are out in full force yelling their little heads off. Large flocks of robins and blackbirds use our front yard as their stopover spot. They like to splash around in the birdbath and gorge on the seeds from the invasive Brazilian Pepper Trees. We’ve eradicated them from our yard, but the darn robins keep finding some to eat and get drunk on.

The baby ospreys must have chipped their way out of the eggs a bit early because the air is filled with their demands for food. (I think we’re about a month ahead of schedule.) Some can fly, and they have been perched in the tops of our Norfolk Pines screeching for their moms every morning. Eventually, you’ll see a bird and fish fly over the house to shut up the screaming. Even the cardinals are chirping their mating calls, and the blue jays are boisterously calling all of their friends over to the feeder.

The front yard has gotten down right noisy in these waning days of January.

February looks to be a very productive month. There are new statement beads sitting on the bench waiting for me to get other projects out of the way and start to work on them.

In the meantime, enjoy some spring in Florida. This crazy rat snake thought it was a good idea to zigzag between the bricks on the side of the house.
