    I keep seeing what I think are grackles in videos of SpaceX at Bocq Chica. Black birds with long tails, anyhow.

    A lovely bald eagle flew low over our car a short time ago. It was carrying a stick, presumably for its nest. I never get tired of seeing them.

    Tonight a half dozen deer darted through the backyard. I didn't get any pictures. I have a raised bed with some "flowers" in it. Last night they came over to see if they were food. They are not.

    I'll figure I'll leave them in the raised bed for a few nights in an effort attract them to an empty bed. I hope once the bed is full of plants, they'll ignore it because they already investigated it. I'll put so screens up around the plants but if the deer get too interest, they could bulldoze their way in. I hope they won't.

    The deer here definitely consider our flowers as food!

    ETA: I had failed to notice the quote marks around "flowers" or look at the picture!
