This showed up first thing in the morning — about six o’clock, or so. (That’s why there’s so much noise in the pictures. Lighting conditions were less than optimal, to say the least.) Anyhow, it dug up my planter and spread dirt over my balcony, so I’m exposing its nasty mouthparts to the world. World, behold:
Birds! Bewilderment! Being outside!
This is my blog! It's mostly about birds, but also about being outside: photographs I've taken while outside, accountings of places I've parted company with umbrellas, notes on interesting rubbish sightings, and so forth. If I don't post about being outside for a few days, please comment and harass me till I go outside.
