A Bunch of Birds

13 Jul

I haven’t had much time for bird watching, but I have managed to get a few pictures when I’ve been out tracking kids.  It’s been a bit excessive this summer. One day right before we left, I had a very good evening of photographing birds.

And there’s a lot of barn swallows right now.

They are everywhere!

What Do You Want?

10 Jun

I am leaving to go on vacation for two weeks at the end of June.  You may have heard about this already.  My mom and I are going on a genealogy road trip.  I am at the point of trying to figure out what to do with the blog while I’m gone.

One option is to just preschedule posts with a few pictures from the farm–goats, llamas, wild birds, cats, and such.

Perdita will be getting a new horn apparatus before we leave.

Another option would be to do those scheduled posts but throw in some vacation things when I get time.  It would most likely be nature, history, and cemeteries.

Finally, I could just not do anything. That is tempting, but after so long of posting every day that would be weird.

More Birds

24 May

I am really enjoying all of the wild birds this spring.  I have already overloaded you with bird pictures, but I just can’t stop taking more pictures.  So…

I need to wash my windows, but I couldn’t resist sharing him with his big maple seed.

I can’t believe all the Baltimore orioles I’ve had.

The northern flicker landed in the tree right by me and then took off again.

There was a pair of Eastern kingbirds.

The red-bellied woodpecker was a long ways off, but I just love them.

I do love my domestic birds too.  Mr. Peacock is still dancing for everyone, and they still don’t appreciate him.

The girls are doing okay in the smaller greenhouse, but I really need to start getting their building cleaned out and the pen repaired.

As much as she enjoys a clean bath, I don’t know why she keeps throwing all the junk in her pool.

I am ready to be done teaching for the summer.
