Just got a new book from my library, "The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession and the Natural History Heist of the Century" by Kirk Johnson. This is a true crime story of the theft of hundreds of bird skins from the British Museum by a champion fly-tier. These feathers are worth a huge amount to some who are obsessed with Victorian fly-tying. Who knew?! Looks like a real page-turner.
I have finally found the nest of the house wren in my garage. It's on top of and inside of my garage door opener. Good thing I left the door open the past few weeks. Whether I will need a new opener remains to be seen...they poked sticks into every little opening and vent.
