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.

Pumpkins and Pheasants

24 Sep

The pheasants are still hanging out in the pumpkin patch.  I have the feeling they aren’t going to like weekends in October.

At least I hope they don’t.

My biggest fear is that nobody is going to show up.  My second biggest fear is so many people show up that I sell out in the second week.

(Sorry for the poor quality pictures. I wasn’t expecting them and didn’t have time to change settings on the camera.)

Flushing Pheasants

27 Aug

As I was walking up to the pumpkin patch last night, I heard pheasants.  I knew they were going to fly at some point, but I still am never prepared.

There were probably five or six.
