I don't have a lot of words to pour into the keyboard for once, so instead...


Pictures from a lunchtime stroll around the property:

Dandelions - What's not to like?


A tree swallow with nesting material,
sitting on our brand new birdhouse.
The male and female both dive bombed
me while I was taking pictures.
Their cute little twittering as they
buzzed me didn't come across as
very intimidating though.


A baby killdeer.
Mother and Father were squawking and flailing around
with faux injuries to lure me away from the chicks.
I think I counted five. They're the cutest little things.


A red-winged blackbird among last year's cattails
(Looks better if you click for a larger image)

Sorry, no frogs. They hear me coming and
sound the alarm about 30 feet ahead of me.
All I ever see is the splashes.

Hmmm, e4 I think Morgan just called us uninteresting nobodies. The pics are wonderful! Who ever decided dandelions were weeds anyways? I think they're great too.

The baby killdeer is so cute! I've never seen a baby before. (One of the birds I studied in Environmental Science class way back when.)
