The dominant resident partridge chases the interloper ...
Then does a challenge dance, and initiated a fight when the interloper did not leave!
|The happy pair|
|Cyanocitta cristata -- Blue Jay feeding on the millet seeds.|
|OK, the bird turned to look to his right when the shutter snapped; |
so he looks like a weird, beakless, pointy-headed thing here.
|Guess who is an avid bird watcher?|
|Birdies whets his appetite! There's a very good reason he's not allowed out without |
his jingly bell collar!
|Cardualis pinus (pine siskin) at the feeder|
|Notice the swollen caudex with slight indication of the unique "Elephant foot" scales on the top. Caudex has grown form just under 0.5mm to 0.7mm in the winter. Getting more sun now, hopefully it'll vine out more! |
|Crassula ovata is growing happily, but slowly, in the cake container LOL|
|Gollum fares very well indoors. He has doubled in size since I first got him in July. |
|Rooting the tuber in a jam jar filled with water. Some new roots have come out! |
Hopefully it'll produce some healthy slips to start a hanging vine garden for the swing!
