A warm breezy day in Erda yesterday gave me the opportunity to watch flycatchers and trench drain lines to dump the water from the roof away from the house. Later we had dinner on Lisa and Sean's deck to the accompaniment of a gorgeous sunset. All in all a wonderful day.
Perhaps a Willow or a Gray Flycatcher?
Yours truly getting his exercise. I did 6 trenches about 25 feet long and 10 inches deep in the time it would have taken me to wear myself out hand digging one.
The kids have removed some trees from the backyard and opened up their view wonderfully!
