After putting in my six hours at the National Agricultural Center - Agricultural
Hall of Fame today, I picked my pals up and we went out to do
the evening chores.
On the way home, I decided to drive past the red-tailed hawk's nest...
You might have to biggify it to see the expression on the hawk's face. I was lucky to get it.
I'm trying to figure out if there are babies already born there.
I think there are.
Before I could move six feet, I saw this:
The second one today.
Of course, I helped him across... and remember, you should always put them in the direction they are going... in this case, there was a steep bank in front of it, so I climbed through the ditch
and put him up in the pasture. I figure it was up to him to get through the grass.
These two were contentedly laying together a little farther down the same road.
Does that calf have a cute face or what?
These hens were with a larger group...
Here was their tom, and there was another tom with them, not displaying.
The iris show goes on.
And on and on and on.
But this little guy was my catch of the day.
He's an Eastern Kingbird.
I don't remember ever seeing one at Calamity Acres before.
He flew up and down, catching insects in the air, very close to me.
I just don't remember seeing any, though.
I can't wait to see him again!
