Growlmy took a couple pics of my schnooter, this morning when the lighting was better, and no flash was needed.
|Blue for you, BOL!|
|Right in the center is where you can see some leftover blue tinge|
We were finally able to walk about in most of our yard today, and OMD, the branches that are down along with limbs, made growlmy feel blue with the thought of all the extra hours of work needed to get it all cleaned up. And...she found lots of mall trees and shrubs with the bottom bark stripped off, chewed...probably by rabbits, they get in when I don't patrol, and fur sure I wasn't able to get back there...and worse yet the red squirrels have taken over a large snag and there seems to be a thriving furmily there...GRRRRR!
And somefur has dug itself a tunnel under our shed, yikes! I will be busy this spring and they better know that I do not give notice nor serve eviction notices...I just get to work!
Of course growlmy also got several more bagfuls of doo-doo...but she didn't have the bags with her when she found a large collection of bunny drops...hey, they are great for snacks, good thing she didn't have her bag...
Several days ago before the snow started to melt, growlmy saw a pair of Sandhill Cranes !
Sheesh, what on earth were they thinking to migrate back here when there was still no grass to walk on, let alone finding things to eat?
Anyways they are huge beautiful birds, but a bit shy, growlmy took some pictures through an open window with her zoom on as much as she could get it ...they turned out pretty well, considering. They were in the field across the street!

|They Are Doing a Kind of Mating Dance, Here.|
|Cold Cranes with Frozen Feet...|
OMD! They look so cold...
Sometimes I see these birds with their (big) chicks, they are graceful and they have one or two chicks at a time. The pairs mate for life.
Growlmy thought that with the receding snow levels that Daisy from next door wouldn't be able to get in our yard anymore...wrong...
So she boarded up the access point, and now I can only have 'through the fence' playtime...
I got to have a good bark at their kitty today...WOOFS!
