I keep thinking with the cold weather all the "friskiness" of the birds is TOO early, but this sweet little Inca Dove found not only a pretty safe spot but she/they built a pretty good nest compared to the 3 crossed sticks we usually see.
I don't know why but these little guys always crack me up. They are either basking, running lickety split away when they spot us, or stopping and doing their pushups. We also have larger lizards in the garden but it is hard to get a picture of them because as soon as they see us they make a race car driver seem slow.
When I put out our seedlings in about a week or so I will be covering them with the poor man's cloches.
Looking ahead at the long range (2 weeks) forecast I don't think most of the valley will see near freezing temperatures. However, keep the frost protection handy just in case until at least mid-March.
