I decided to join the Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club and mailed them a cheque today to cover membership fees before I could change my mind. It's been a long time since I've belonged to a club of any kind. I wonder if I'll have to get up and introduce myself at the next club meeting and, if so, whether it would be appropriate to say "Hi, I'm Gillian and I'm a birdaholic. And a chocoholic too, for that matter." Then again, maybe they won't get my sense of humor.

I found a dead sparrow in my yard this evening near the back fence. It was intact, so I'm wondering if it was killed flying into the window of the house behind us. (The house is sideways to us, and has a narrow side yard or walkway on the other side of my back fence).

My Hummingbird Summersweet is in bloom right now and smells delicious. I might buy another one next year for the scent alone!
