Thoughts on Software Development, Project Management, Parenting, and Running.

I have been at war with two pairs of sparrows that are trying to invade the Martin House. Last year I allowed the sparrows to co-exist with the Martins. According to the experts that was a very poor decision. The sparrows chased off all but one pair last year and that pair was not successful at raising their babies.

I have two pairs of Martins this year. There is one mature pair older than two years, maybe the same pair from last year? And one sub-adult pair. The young pair have been stuggling with the sparrows and have yet to lay any eggs. The adult pair guard their nest continuously. They laid six eggs which hatched this week. Right now we have six baby Martins!
