So, of course, my two (!) batteries went dead on the third day in Italy and I didn't have a Euro charger.
Upon my return home I found the morning doves' nest had been raided, but a robin had laid eggs in a nest near the back door and is raising three babies there. They're at the stage where their eyes are opening and they flap their wings when a parent approaches. It takes a lot not to get a ladder and go and give them kisses. I think they probably have another 5-7 days in the nest.
I'm back to playing around with getting pictures on this blog, so here's hoping . . .
