A Good Day In Western Kentucky

It was a good day outdoors. The mostly cloudy day never giving way to sunshine. Spent the morning making rounds to photograph. Saw a Great Horned owl being harassed by Osprey, an Eastern Kingbird, and Crows as it flew back to its nest to check on its chick. The Kingbird landing on its back and pecking its head. The crow tugging at its ear feathers. Saw two heron land in the water at the same time to catch a fish, they both missed it. Caught the eagles swapping out caring for their young on the nest. One bringing in a fish and feeding. Watched the cliff swallows catching insects above Kentucky Dam. Saw a Peregrine Falcon whiz by headed from the dam down river. I wonder where they are nesting?  A Tufted Titmouse was singing merrily as it worked along an oak branch grabbing something and eating it. Caught it in one opening and whatever it is that it was eating looked heart shaped. Don’t have a clue what it was?

I mowed around the farm in the afternoon. Cutting walking paths around the garden and back through the fields and around our pond. By then the temps had warmed up in to the eighties. Took a pic of our bleeding hearts blooming. The plant getting crowed out and almost too shaded now. Wondering if I should transplant it? Made a quick meal of some barbecued brisket and went to bed tired and content. The thoughts of the wonders of our home in Western Kentucky filled my thoughts as I drifted off to sleep.

I spotted this Morel Mushroom near the end of the garden

Our daughter Becky made a trip to the garden to cut the Asparagus and found some more Morel’s along the edge of the garden. This is her cellphone pic, a nice basket I thought depicting the time of year to start gathering both.

Morning Rounds

On my morning rounds it sure is looking like spring with everything turning green. The trees putting on leaves. I spent the rest of the day planting a good portion of our wildflower patches in hopes of attracting and feeding the hummers, butterflies, goldfinches and other insects…

Afternoon Delight

Spent a wonderful warm spring afternoon outdoors. Let me tell you it was a delight. Once again a lot of time at the eagles nest. The eaglets all are doing fine being well cared for by the adults. I even included a poop shot today. Not my favorite shot but folks may not know that the eaglets instinctively know to relieve themselves over the side of the nest. Ain’t nature grand?
