It's Candy. Jayden and I saw 2 male baltimore orioles yesterday. Chickadees are nesting in the area where large patch of buckthorn was removed, in a snag. I'll send you pics, Pete. Jayden and I are also putting up birdhouses.

I was there this morning and heard lots of birds. But looking at all the standing water, it looks like great habitat for mosquitoes too. What will keep them in check?
Erika Buri
01:00:22
As far as I know we have very few sink holes in the OO.

Removal of buckthorn is shown to reduce mosquito populations.
