We now return to your regularly scheduled programming

Sharon comes home today. Normal blogging will resume shortly, along with your daily recommended allowance of Brown Birds.

First, a bit of housekeeping:

To celebrate Sharon's return, we're having a bit of a sale over at the Birdchic Boutique. We're clearancing out our remaining Birdchick shirts for ten bucks each, plus shipping and handling (no, not the Disapproving Rabbits shirts). Get 'em while they last!

Three of the Monarch cocoons turned black overnight, which means they'll be emerging soon. Possibly today!

Thanks to all of you for your kind words during my guest stint (I typed "stink" there. Paging Dr. Freud!). Sharon tells me that she has an interesting post about bald birds coming up, right after she goes back and corrects every single inaccurate thing I wrote in her blog.

So long, and for god's sake, stop driving while birding!
