There’s a whole family of red-headed woodpeckers out there.

Birdwalk

3 Jun

After removing Hera’s head from the fence the other day, I walked right past the male bobolink sitting at eye level again.  Seriously?  I swear the next time, I’m going to make that girl wait until I get my camera (not really). Anyhow, I got my camera and went back out.  I saw a lot of birds, including the bobolink!

Now I just need to convince them to come down closer to me and sit still.

More Snow

26 Jan

Well, it’s another Saturday with another round of snow.

We’re supposed to have more snow or rain turning to ice as soon as it hits the ground tomorrow night.  Then the dangerous cold is supposed to show up.

That means we could have more late starts and cancellations at school (which would make my dog happy), but it also means I’m going to have a hard time trying to take any pictures for the blog.  Yeah, I’ll probably be crazy enough to venture out with the camera if it stops snowing.
