Pheasant

6 Nov

I used to always hear pheasants all summer long and see them flying all fall.  I haven’t seen or heard many in the last couple of years, so I was excited when I started seeing some this fall.

Hopefully, they know to stay safe during hunting season.

Goldfinches

4 Jul

The state bird of Iowa is the Eastern Goldfinch.  I’ve seen quite a few of them this year.  I was excited to look out the window and find one sitting on my front fence.

It wasn’t long before the bird left the fence for a delicious treat of catnip seeds.

Their favorite food, however, is thistle seed.  Lucky for this one that the goats left a few.

I love these bright birds.  I did learn that I really need to wash my front window if i want a clear picture too.  Something about those cats’ nose prints on the glass that makes it fuzzy.

On a totally different topic, I’m going away.  Yep, I’m actually taking a vacation. I should have posts going up regularly, but if you don’t hear from me, it’s because my Internet access will be limited to non-existent.  I’ll try to catch up when I get back to visit everyone and read/respond to every comment that is left.
