What you are seeing here is a series of bridges over the freeway, the white arches are suspension/hurricane arches, as you can see the water is just under the bridges, the freeway is far beneath.  Many cars were down there.  This is a block from my house

This is what it looks like when it isn't flooded

It's baby bird season again - trauma time

Every season after the babies hatch and before they can fly properly
there is this traumatic time of baby birds hopping around in roadways
yards and sidewalks.  We've already had one traumatic incident with
a beautiful baby blue jay who survived 4 days and then was killed by a freak
accident near a neighbour's house.  Now the cardinals are leaving their nest.
I believe there are three of them.  One is out of the nest today and in a desperate attempt
to keep the yard cleaners from stepping on it or blowing it to smithereens, I have
placed it in abasket inside a cardboard box until they leave.  The parents are having fits.  The baby wonders why I don't feed it.  Certainly I'm big enough it thinks.  I tried putting him
in a potted plant but it got out.  it got out of the basket too which is why the basket is now
in a cardboard box.

Here he is on the ground

here he is in the basket, note the reckless look on his face "I'm busting out of here I am!"

and again
