Tweet tweet plop. Times two.


They both fell out of the nest again today. Just not enough room.


We moved them into an empty window box on the nearby shed (after trying unsuccessfully one more time to just re-nest them) with the parents watching from nearby branches. About five minutes after we put them in the window box (on top of a cotton rag, kind of in the shape of a nest) the parents were back to feeding them insects.


Hope they fledge in a few more days, unhurt from these traumatic events.

Up, up and away!!!

It took them a couple of hours this morning to get the needed strength and maneuverability in their wings, but they are flitting around from branch to branch now.

Sometimes, it takes a village.

Yeah, I know maybe we should have just let nature take its course.. But these two birds we helped along are replacing two out the millions that die each year by flying into glass windows. That makes sense to me. :-)

One of the whitetail does coming to our food plot has twin fawns. They race around, jump and spin, and nap at the edge of the field.

Graffiic warning beware.
Don’t like it don’t read it.
It’s ugly but yet it’s nature.

We are PNW.

So we saw an amazing thing yet ugly thing 2 days ago.
2 bald eagles flying.
One grabbed a seagull in mid flight.
Took it to the dock and killed it.
Sickly shocking.
It bounced on it for a while giving it kill shots, plucked it and then stripped the meat out.
It actually took its meat/fillets to its nest.
Nature can be gruesome.

Sorry if my nature views are not nice but this is some of what we see.

We have mini dogs and such and are a bit nervous.
Andy.

Pretty interesting. I've never seen that.

An adult (big!) female turkey landed in the side yard of my suburban home earlier today. The other side is mostly grass, but this area has ground cover, perennial plants, flowers, and shrubs.

This is now the second time this has happened.

I was cleaning my bathroom window this morning,opening it when I noticed a cute young wild rabbit happily hopping around in my garden and approaching my iceberg rosebush. I watched him,smiling as suddenly a Cooper's hawk (at least I think it was) zoomed down and grabbed the young unaware rabbit.

It left me for a moment speechless..... sure enough a few minutes later 4 more young ones were chasing each other carefree around my garden.I wonder if they missed their sibling.....
