12. The big thing about the hose is that I have to crawl into the bushes between the two nests

to turn it on. Now that would really make them mad. So far I have filled up big water pitchers and gone out at night because it seems birds must sleep at night. The dogwood tree however is something I have been nurturing three years now and it really is drooping. It needs a good dosing all over.

I thought about walking out under the umbrella and one of my neighbors started laughing at the idea. (But this is the neighbor that also laughed at the catbird going after his dog, which I thought was very insensitive).

I guess I am overly sensitive, I don't want people thinking I have gone off the deep end, but I don't want those birds around me either. I guess I need to develop better coping kills about these things.

Thank you so much for your advice. I think the accumulation of advice I have received on this thread is helping me to bolster my resolve.

Sam
