To a retiree, all days are Hump Days.
Sorry, had to say that!
Very short post tonight, as I spent the afternoon seeing my brother and
having lunch with a cousin.
You are probably all so sick of seeing the old henyard. I did not pay attention to the news last night,
and I paid for it this morning. I had to break ice out of all the water fortexes, as it was
only 15 degrees out this morning.
I had filled the pool for the ducks yesterday, and did not dump it, either, but I was able to tip it
out just a little bit ago this evening.
While I was giving the goats their evening hay, clouds were advancing upon us. We are going to have a couple of days of clouds, and cold, then sun again.
This, on the left, is a mulberry tree way down in the pasture, near the brush pile. It has a root down at the bottom that is PERFECT to set the critter cam. I set it last night, to see who would take Butch.
I got nothing this morning.
I was riled. (mildly).
I finally figured out the HD card lock was ON. Duh, Mary Ann.
So, this guy was watching me calmly the whole time. It is NOT an owl... it is a very large hawk.
Split tail... friend Jill, what do you think? Dark back, light stomach.
I had the binocs with me for once!
And this is the sad, tiny amount of eggs I collected from both henhouses today, and includes two green duck eggs.
What the HECK, girls???
I think we are expecting colder weather for a couple of days, then a warm weekend... yee ha!
And Jill... I say it's a red-shoulder or ferrugineous... too big for a Coopers or any of the little
hawks. It's a big guy. Definitely a split tail, though.
