Sitting right under our outdoor thermometer and right beside an empty bird feeder this ring-tailed masked bandit was the first thing I saw in Bird Alley this morning when I looked out to check the early morning temperature around 6 a.m. I thought it looked rather sweet with an appealing look in its eyes. but its sweetness won't last long!. Tomorrow we will be making our annual pilgrimage to Keswick Valley to take out tax data to our accountant. Somehow I don't expect to see any Canada Geese there, which is my yearly anticipation!
