    I have seen this species ... a long time ago and not in this pose

    I have seen one, or more, of these almost every year for the past 6-7 years. I don't recall ever seeing one in the 50+ years before that so I consider myself lucky, even if I haven't been lucky enough to see one in this pose. Although I haven't seen one yet this year, I have heard them.

    Mom's going through some health issues.Β  I'm grateful I retired last fall; I have no clue how we would be coping with this if I still had to work.

    Sorry to hear that. I thought the anxiety of building a new home and moving might be enough to cause a few restless nights. I'm sure that must add to the stress related to your mother's health, even if it can't be compared to it. My thoughts are with you through these difficult times.

    Ditto.Β  I'm rougher than a sandpaper sample pack.

    I suspect it might be for similar reasons for both of us, perhaps on different levels. Ensuring I've got secure accommodations is a stressful thing, and it's keeping awake at night, and throwing me off my Birdie game.

    That was a tough one. Putting the two letters I had to work with into AlphaCodes.net didn't provide any options that matched my remaining letters. I started adding a third random letter until I found a possible combination that worked.

    I don't think a spoiler will help anyone on this one, but I hid it in this quote anyways. Expand the quote for a useless clue.

    I'm not sure there is anything 'decent' about waking up at 3am, nor am I sure there's anything 'indecent' about staying up until that hour. Having experience doing both at times, there's one thing I am sure of, it makes for a short night's sleep and a long day no matter the reason you're awake at that hour. 😴

    I only got a brief glimpse of the shape as it flew by so I can't identify the species with certainty but a Swallow just zipped by a few inches off the ground. I thinkΒ it was a Barn Swallow but haven't waited for a second sighting to confirm that. So I will just say that the Swallows are now showing up here in Southern Ontario.

    I am having serious doubts about this earlier ID. I was sure the flight pattern, and the usual pathway taken, was that of a swallow at the time, but I have yet to see another one so now I'm less confident in my initial judgment. Good thing I don't keep lists, I'd be questioning every ID I made that didn't have photographic proof, no matter how confident I was at the time of listing the ID. πŸ€ͺ

    Just for clarity, the humorous thoughts running through my mind had nothing to do with @Charlie SpencerΒ being committed. Although I do admit to seeing the humour in that too.

    Glad I picked one randomly from the list instead of going through my options alphabetically.
