11.3°C at 7:16 AM. Today will be overcast with zero wind. Sunrise was at 5:03 AM with sunset being 10:06 PM. There is a waning gibbous. Today is forecast to be warmer than yesterday.
There's quite a bird population in the backyard of our condo and our neighbors'. We had a swallow couple that had nested in one of our birdhouses; alas, it wasn't very stable as the tree holding the birdhouse would move in the wind. Our neighbor was at a fair north of here in Fort Saskatchewan and he picked up some birdhouses free from the Fish and Game Association and nailed them up on his fence.
Well, one morning we came out and our swallow couple had upgraded and moved into one of the more stable houses next door. They appear to be quite happy building a new nest in the more stable birdhouse. I will continue this story tomorrow.
