Back At It

After a great visit with the kids and grandkids I am back home and at it. I finally purchased another computer. It was a bit frustrating as it took many stops at many stores many of which showed the computer in stock only to find they did not have it when I went there. I did not want to spend too much and kept at  it until I got it done. A reasonably priced tool that should get the job done. Still going through old pics before the storm and computer problems put a holt to my work. Hope to be back to posting consistently. Thank You for your patience…

Storm Stoppage And Frustration

We had a storm Monday night that took out our internet and damaged my old laptop.  We have DSL. It took AT&T until Thursday afternoon to get a technician here and make repairs. We use DSL as it is what we can afford. It is very reliable as a whole but extremely slow. One reason I have to make the images so small so they will load in a reasonable amount of time.

It is frustrating when there is nothing I can do to fix things. My normal patience runs out. So I still have to acquire another laptop. The old one was around eleven years old and like any often used tool seemed to fit my hand like the right weight hammer or a chainsaw that starts on the first pull.

Using my wife’s laptop today and it took a bit of time to get it linked up to be able to post. I have a backlog of pics to go through as well. We are heading out to visit the kids and grandkids will not return until Tuesday. Will try to get through the old pics and make a few posts while gone, should time allow. It was a good week other than the trial of being unable to work on the blog. Lots of migrating birds coming through. It is a joy to sit in the yard and share my limited bird knowledge with my ” Little Woman”. To share in the incredible variety of feather colors and combinations. Spring such a beautiful time. A couple new goat kids another or two expecting to arrive. The chickens with freshly hatched chicks to attend. The rain keeping us from starting the garden also a bit frustrating it is just to wet to till. So bare with me and I apologize for disappearing for days with no warning but nothing I could do about it. Hope you have a great weekend with a bit of sunshine…

Tale Of The Shrew

One of the things that keep me going observing wildlife, is the new things I see and wonder about. Possibly learning by further watching. Yesterday the male eagle flew over the nest with oak leaves and continued on. Looking back at its talons as if to see what or if it had caught something. This looking back is often observed by birds of prey and they will sometimes kill what they have caught while gliding. The eagle dropped the oak leaves and swung down landing on the road and tried to catch a scurrying small rodent. The eagle finally gave up. The rodent continued towards me and I was able to take a few pics of it. It looked like a shrew although I have never seen one before except in books. Turns out we have short tailed shrews in Kentucky and they climb trees. Last week the same eagle brought in oak leaves another time. Perhaps containing a shrew in that mass ? I do know that most birds of prey are opportunists and will catch any available critter to eat…
