117 this morning, 104 at bedtime last night.
I have water on two sides of my house, a seasonal creek that always has some water in it, and an irrigation ditch across the back which also has some water in it so no need for a bird bath here.
Biopsy is scheduled for the 29th. The Ear, Nose, Throat dr did say that 70-75% of these tumors are benign. His procedure is the same either way. My Oncologist sure could have shared that stat with me instead of scaring me.
102 this morning. Still warming up with a high yesterday of 86° and should be a couple of degrees warmer today. I'm good as long as it is under 100° and then I tend to stay inside. Yes, the "juice" is just sugar water. I add the coloring so it's easy to see the level in the feeder. It's correct that the birds don't need it to tell it's there. I have had a lot of bees on them at the other house but not here. The soda can on top was filled with water to stop ants from climbing into these which was a real problem at the other house but so far not here.

134 this morning.
We don't have a hummingbird feeder as we seem to attract more bees than birds. I had also read that sugar and water is the best food for the hummingbirds minus the red food colouring that some people insist attracts them. I envy those of you who get the privilege of watching the "hummers".
We have a lone bird bath which my husband has to clean most every day except in winter, then it is once a week. We like watching the birds drink and then bathe getting the nice, sparkling clean water all dirty by days end. Oh well.
Barbara - I think that one doctor spoke out of turn assuming that what you have is malignant. Will be hoping your biopsy turns out to be benign and harmless. Btw......have a great trip to see your children and grandchildren.
What juice is that Wally ? We keep 5 earthen pans in our lawn filled with plain water. There are some 15-20 pigeons and about 6 crows that drink at any given time. Then we have others like Kites, Mynas, Magpies, Squirrels and most days a lone king fisher. The water needs to be filled up twice a day, each time probably 30 liters, because the birds love to use the pans as a bath tub.
