For a couple days now this little girl has been showing up. When I first saw her I thought what a funny looking bird. Now that I have watched her for two days now, I feel rather sorry for her. It is our fault these birds are being altered like this, or this is the way I see it. Chemicals are more likely to blame. Continue reading
Sunday I headed to our ponds to see what was going on. One of the boys was going after something, that is our English Mastiff dogs. I thought it was the frogs and I do not like them going after the frogs. Continue reading

This Robin Bird Fledgling is in the Lilacs. The Lilacs even after blooming season give such things as these fledglings a nice place to hide! My observations is, the fledglings either stop here at the Lilacs if they are to young to make it to the fruit tree. Or the fledglings are to afraid to get into the fruit tree just yet? Continue reading
