The closest stop sign is over a mile away and the first traffic light is 5+ miles down the road. A visit to the grocery store is almost 30 miles round trip. It's quiet here; just the sound of toads and coyotes at night. It seems very still, but when you look close there's always something happening. Read on about a few things we've noticed over the past few years.

Egg anyone?

Why would a bird lay an egg on a concrete shingle?  I wish I knew what kind of bird it was.  I've found quite a few unbroken eggs in the yard over the past couple of years.  I suspect this one was a pigeon.  We've found blue humming bird eggs before too.  Unfortunately, a day later a wind came along and this one fell off the roof and broke on the ground.
