Swan in Töölönlahti, Helsinki, Finland.
Today I deliberately didn´t hang the feeder for the hummingbirds. Because today is Saturday and the worker’s day, I wanted to sleep one hour more. Well, the birds were very upset, they made protests at the window and one, quite bold, even entered the kitchen demanding sugary water!
My gardening buddy today. Saw her a few times last year, glad she’s still around.
Internet says black king snake.
that’s a very handsome snake. wonderful coloration and pattern.
Is that a compost bin along the fence? Very nice if so!
It is! Three-bay system, upcycled from an old deck.
Poor sparrow got caught in its own nest material.
Sparrows had used some plastic weedblocker material in their nest and left it sticking out the hole, allowing mama bird to get tangled. Don’t worry, I freed her, but not before she tried to bite a chunk out of my glove!
