Thanks Mark for the natures view.
What a fun back yard.
We live in an area that has "green space" behind the house and
get a lot of wildlife also. I stopped feeding the birds as they made too much of a mess
The field rats were attracted to the food the birds spilled out of the feeders.
I do make lots of different houses for them and also put out some stuffing fiber for their nests.
I do miss watching the Finches though.
On our walks around the area we see a large assortment of wildlife though.
Nature sure is fun.
