This beautiful blue heron took off out of the drainage ditch as I went by on Thursday.
I could not get a closer picture of him. Does anyone have any idea what the white pvc pipes are for?
There are in this field and the next, and I have not seen them anywhere else. These fields
are in bottom land, near a creek that has been known to flood.
Same ditch, this morning... green winged teal.
This barred owl was on the Holy Angels Cemetery sign on my way
home from church last night.
I posted him on Facebook... (Mary Ann Yoder)... I am so glad to
see so many owls healthy and living well in Leavenworth County.
The rain yesterday morning has made the creeks run large, and the countryside
really green up.
I've seen a hawk or two, usually when I can't stop.
Oh, for the sun.
The lone turkey girl I keep finding in the bottom corn field was there again yesterday...
But had a friend with her! I have only seen her alone until yesterday.
This looks like an empty picture. However... it's the two big fields across from the corn patch in the upper two pictures. Notice anything?
There were two turkey hunters out early this morning.
I know I'm crazy, but I said a prayer that the two turkey hens went north instead of south.
I have been trying for weeks to get a picture of this flock of sheep.
This morning, they were right up by the fence... aren't they lovely? I know next
to nothing about sheep... but I do know it is difficult to get small flocks shorn in Leavenworth County.
We had a few minutes of sun this morning, sort of watery sun... but it is still overcast as I type this.
The dogs did not get to go for a run yesterday, so were eager to get out of the car this morning.
Jes ran for the pasture immediately.
You would not know that Troy cut the yard for us on Thursday night. The rain since then has
made the grass grow like crazy.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
