These birds land in one of the redwood trees in our backyard almost every day around 5:00 pm.

p.s. I’m having tooth/gum surgery this week, so I won’t be posting for a few days. I had hoped to post a follow-up to Not Perfect (with eating disorder resources), but haven’t finished putting it together yet, so I’ll do that in the next couple of weeks. Have a great week, everyone! :)


  1. It really has been. The kids were looking out the window just tonight saying, "there are those birds, Mom!" It's really interesting how they seem to show up every night around the same time, hang out for a while, then fly away. :)

  2. Good luck with the Dental surgery! Love this pic ~ and Redwoods??? Ya gotta live in CA! We used to live in Monterey when hubby was in Navy and loved taking our kids to see the redwoods! Happy WW to everyone!

  3. What a stunning photo – the sky, the birds, the branches. Beautiful. Good luck with your gum surgery!
