Amazing nature - The Eagle Owl

A friend sent this to me and I had to share it with you. Amazing!
Last thing many a mouse has seen.

Nope. But you're nice to say so.

Default And yet another sign of spring returning

This afternoon I stopped by a jobsite out by a local creek with a pond in it. While there the sun once again made an unexpected but welcome appearance and the warmth from it was heavenly. The temperature topped out around 11 or 12 degrees (low to mid 50s for us Farenheit fans) today and the only thing to imply that it wasn't full blown spring was the absence of leaves on the trees.

We all took a break to soak up the fabulous sunshine and then it happened; that unmistakeable sound of spring. Out from the reeds by the edge of the pond came the song of a Pacific Chorus (Tree) Frog. I haven't heard that sound since mid October and it was pure music to my ears...as well as the ears of everyone else present. It took a little while to track him down but we finally spotted him resting on the rocks beside the pond, he was waiting patiently for us to move on before he continued his crooning in search for a hot date - I wished him luck in his pursuit of love on a pleasant February afternoon.



A very good evening to all.

Ron

Maybe you should rub some dirt on them. You know, as a public service to the birds.
