With the help of Alan, the cats’ food and water dishes have been scrubbed and refilled. Their sandboxes cleaned and refilled.
I went outside, took down, scrubbed and refilled the hummingbird feeders. I had a chorus of Wattlebirds, and at least two varieties of honey-eaters while I worked. When I was finished I counted 5 adult (young and resident) Red Wattlebirds, and I heard the unmistakable sound coming from the Jacaranda tree of a young fledgling Red Wattlebird begging to be fed.
