Down to One....

One Red-Tailed Hawk chick has left the nest….the other one is practicing getting some lift.

Red-Tail Chicks

The Red-tailed hawks are getting closer to their exodus from the nest. I thought that they were gone when we stopped at the nest tonight, but just when we were getting ready to leave a head popped up and there they were!

Cedar Waxwings


These are such elegant birds….with their black masks and their jauntily tipped headgear, they just exude class. I wondered how it was that they were named….until I had an opportunity to see one close-up. Here’s some pics from the Dayton KOA Kampgrounds. The red tips of their wings acually look like drops of candle wax….they are so aptly named!

Bringing Home the BUgs

I watched this American Robin gather a load ‘o bugs to take back to her brood….
There are at least two (maybe three) damselflies, a slug, an earthworm, and another dragonfly. What a beakful!!
