You may recall the robin incident
in September. Apparently Riley is a bird dog only in the sense that she likes to eat them. This time Steve caught her looking guilty with a mouth full of nest, then eating the last of the little blue eggs inside. She had removed the nest from its perch about 5 feet off the ground inside a prickly juniper. We've seen yellow birds (finches?) flying in and out of there since then, so I'm hoping they're trying to lay eggs again, perhaps higher up this time.
