By the way Backyard Zoologist readers, my husband and I are moving to Oregon! I know the posts have been pretty short lately and this is why…we’re very busy right now with packing, finding a new apartment and taking care of business here, etc. So, please forgive this run of shorter posts, but I hope to be back on schedule shortly. Cheers!
