They are much more active this week, poking their heads out of the nest, and even starting to preen their little feathers. We saw red-tailed hawks flying way up high in the sky on Wednesday morning, and everyday the swallows have been darting around just over head. We went on bug hunts, turning over some logs and rocks, finding ants, slugs, centipedes, and pill-bugs of every shape and size. We noticed how they roll up into a little ball when they are scared, and we all paused to wait and watch one uncurl again. .
