I went outside to use the leaf blower on the studio porch, leaves are actually falling and blowing onto the porch, I don't know if it is due to the drought or the first sign of fall, however slight it starts with dry falling leaves.
I somehow was "called" into the studio and to a project I'm working on, burning sage and listening to music and organizing my mind about what I should be doing. I finally got to a point on the project I decide to do what my original plan was and that was to blow off the porch.

saved from the cat!
The stalking began in earnest four days ago when we found them nesting in the padding of an old side saddle hanging from the studio porch ceiling. What a treat watching the parents come in to feed them on a regular basis.
And now today, the babies are leaving the nest and I have cats ready to capture the yet unskilled little flyers. I caught the little bird that the cat didn't kill and checked it for injury. It actually seemed fine, but I couldn't release it until I caught the cat. The cat knew I was trying to catch her and kept a safe distance.
