The Last Batches of the Season

22 Aug

I am surprised at  how many baby birds I am hearing out in the barn this late in the season.

There are two nests full of baby barn swallows.

I have to believe these will be the last batches of the season.

Mom was certainly keeping a close eye on her babies.

And me.

Hide and Go Seek Hen

11 Jul

I couldn’t find my little phoenix hen.  I was really worried because of all the issues I’ve had with predators.  I found her though!

This explains why I haven’t found many eggs lately.  I thought it was because I started shutting them in at night.

Holy moly!  There’s sixteen eggs under there.  Only four of them are hers.

Great.  I wonder how many are roosters.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Who’s Sitting?

4 May

I only have two girly gooses left.  They’ve laid a lot of eggs.

Now the African goose is sitting on the nest.

I’m a little worried about how many they might hatch.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of the side bar.
