I love watching nature. It makes you realize that families, regardless of species (and ethnicity, race and national origin), live to ensure that the next generation survives and thrives. We truly are one.

We have a few bird houses and bird feeders here in Descanso because we enjoy watching the bird families. There is one bird house that the same type of bird returns to every year. Not sure if it is the progeny of the previous birds, or the original birds themselves, but it’s a joy to watch them build their nests inside, tend to it, lay their eggs, then raise their young.

I’m attaching a few photos from tonight’s activity. For the youngsters in my life who would rather paint downtown red (I was there once), this is what happens when you age. Suddenly the best Friday night is sitting on the patio watching mommy and daddy bird bring worms, grasshoppers and mosquito wasps to their babies. Yeah, I’m old and a nerd. And happy to be so.
