Birds and the bees

Hummingbird at rest

Bees in the palm with cold pool behind

Roseate Spoonbill over by the Prepa

This was going to be a not very much happening around here post although two hummingbirds were very busy in my Moringa tree. Busy enough one had to take a break. I'm kind of surprised they don't come around the palm flowers because the bees sure love them. Last night we had a small wind storm that blew over parts of the Moringa, a Sugarcane and filled the pool with leaves and pieces of my palapa.

I mentioned a cold pool because every morning for the last week the local weather site shows the morning temperature is 61 degrees which is as cold as it's been all year. It's the end of April if someone didn't notice.

My cat's newest thing is being successful at catching small iguanas. Frogs and lizards have been easy for him in the past but iguanas have been too wary and fast. This past week he killed 3. None larger than a foot and a half long but pretty big for my cat. They live in the lot next door but like to sun themselves on top of my wall. Of course the live ones or dead ones have to be brought for me to see.

Yesterday morning neighbors came over for a ride to the Jaluco Kindergarten because the kids were dressed as cowboys and girls and had stick horses parents had made the day before. Also for me and my camera for some fotos for Facebook. They marched all around Jaluco followed by a band. That post will have to wait.


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
