1. I picked a small bowl of blackberries and left them on the counter for anyone to eat. I don't actually see anyone eating them, but the bowl is gone sometime later.
2. The trumpet vine houses a new batch of baby birds. By the sound of their high-pitched cries, we can tell they aren't mockingbirds. These are house finches, who sound much sweeter.
3. The neighbors tell me that those plops are coyote scat. He says wherever we walk and they smell our scent, they will leave their scat as marking. This is why I see it along our driveway. They come practically right up to the house!
