Grass – Roots

The header photo of this post is an Eastern Meadowlark singing the morning praises atop a newly rolled bale of hay. Hay is, of course, cut and dried grass (or alfalfa or clover or a mix of those plants.) For the meat eaters who… Continue Reading “Grass – Roots”

The Duck Box

Our Duck Box, located on the east side of the pond, has been a happening place. We initially put it up to entice Wood Ducks and/or Kestrels or small Owls to make a home and raise a brood. Through the use of a Trail… Continue Reading “The Duck Box”

Ready To Fly

The little Tree Swallow chicks in Box #14 seem almost ready to take flight. When I checked on them yesterday, I could tell a difference from the photos I took on May 23, just three days earlier. They develop so quickly.

Watch & Learn

This baby House Finch (the noisy one) seems to be demanding that his father (the red one) feed him. Rather than give into the little one’s expectations, it appears that the father and mother (which shows up a bit later) are teaching the fledgling… Continue Reading “Watch & Learn”

Nest Box Status

After several days of rain and dreary weather, I was able to get out in the brilliant sun on April 30 and May 1. May 1 was my birthday, so it was especially nice to experience the tranquillity and vibrancy of Spring. I can’t… Continue Reading “Nest Box Status”

Mama and Papa

This is exciting! The Bluebird pair in Box #15 on the East property line are feeding chicks. Here are a few photos as well as a couple of videos at the bottom. This daddy takes his job very seriously. He remains in constant contact… Continue Reading “Mama and Papa”

Woodpecker Housekeeping

Today, I checked in on the Red-headed woodpecker I had observed (and FILMED) last week. So, I have learned a little about Woodpecker housekeeping. It exists. And, it’s appears to be a grab and toss strategy. I suppose if you watch this video on… Continue Reading “Woodpecker Housekeeping”
