Rap should print that out.

One bird feather was left behind in the bird bath with the fountain, so someone was brave enough to try it. The other bird bath has a number of feathers, so as a control group I see that most of them are still shy of the spurt of water.

I dismantled a crumbling squirrel drey (a word I've never used, but someone else applied it to a recent photo of this thing so I'm trying to remember to use it). Lots of polyfill from a destroyed patio seat (they need to thank the puppy for that) and tons of plastic grocery bags woven through it. The deteriorating plastic is probably the reason for the abandonment, and the location directly over a very large agave plant suggests that if my squirrels are falling out of the tree they're being impaled on the agave. They either all died falling out or got smart and moved on.

A final wildlife observation: No one I know would be this stupid but obviously there are a few.
