Besides eating all of the organic waste from the kitchen the worm farms eats cardboard, paper, burlap, and newsprint. They are a real ecological boon which makes me feel like I'm doing my part to keep waste from the collection yard; it's a small part but effective.
The Crows have returned conjuring up the question I have each year as to where they migrate from and why. They were out in their typical form at daybreak, they and the Vultures are generally the first ones out and about.

One more for this guy as he flies from the pylon to an unknown destination out of my view. After this image he gained altitude, flew to the far side following the Levee then disappeared down around the rivers bend. He will either be back or one of his look alike cronies will show up; like I said they keep things moving around here.
