Fly Over

9 Feb

When I was out with the goats, we had a fly over.

We must have been interesting because s/he came back for another look. (Edit:  I’m excited because I finally realized this is a juvenile bald eagle!)

A couple of days earlier, we had a landing in pasture.  Sorry for the horrible pictures, but they were taken from the window in the house because of the crazy cold, wind and blowing snow.

I felt bad for the poor pheasant.  Nobody should have been out in that horrible weather.

Sadly, it looks like we’re going to have a lot more snow and cold this coming week.  That means the wild birds are enjoying Sky’s dog food.

I really miss putting feeders out, but the dog thinks of them as bait for the birds.  I’m afraid that’s something he’ll never outgrow.

I was going to try to put them up outside the fence, but it ended up freezing before I got that far.  Sorry birds.  Hopefully next year.

Birds From my Walk

12 Apr

Yesterday’s walk in pasture also gave me a few birds.  I was thrilled to see the bluebirds are back!

The little nuthatches stay here all year, but I always enjoy them.

I had already seen the meadowlarks were back.  I love their song!

While the trees might still not look like spring, the grass is certainly turning green!

I am quite happy with that.

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

Rainy Day Bird Watching

25 Mar

With the cold rainy weather, there wasn’t much to do but watch birds out my window.

I think I need to wash the window.  Sadly, I really want to replace the window with a newer glass that doesn’t distort as badly.

I’m sharing with Bird d’Pot.  If you’re interested, there’s still time to join in Friday’s Hunt.
