Happy Birthday to my sweet niece, Stella! 

It felt good to sleep in this morning and have a leisurely start to the day.  We took a nice walk around the neighborhood.  The breeze is slightly cool, but the air felt warm. We both noticed it and agreed that we like it. Temps are supposed to get up to 74 today and we may get a little bit of rain.

There was a presentation in our park today by the Wild at Heart raptor rescue group.  They told us about the birds that they rescue and how they are treated, all with the hope of getting them rehabilitated so they can go back in the wild.  They had several species to show us - all birds that had injuries that wouldn’t allow them to recover sufficiently to ever be released. We saw a Saw Whet Owl, a Burrowing Owl, a Screech Owl (they don’t make a screeching sound), a Harrier’s Hawk, a Red Tailed Hawk, and a Great Horned Owl.

Tom got together with Chaney this afternoon and I stayed home and did - well, not much of anything.
