One of the things I enjoy most about living in the Campestre is the abundance of wildlife surrounding us and visiting our home daily. I could live with out the scorpions, certainly, but even the ugly brown birds that come to steal the dogs' food are welcome in our yard. We also have quite a few song birds living in our trees. Apparently, our windows are quite reflective and these birds aren't too bright. Almost everyday, one of them will come to the long window that spans nearly two stories and illuminates our staircase.  We keep ourselves quite amused watching these colorful creatures attack their own reflections. These daily antics, just outside our windows, drive our poor cat crazy.....which is also fun to watch.

(Wow. I better figure out how to get this window clean before I snap anymore photos. Eeeewww. My mother would be mortified!)
