Why did I sign up to do a post every day??????
If it's raining iguanas, then a few levitating geese shouldn't be a big deal, right?
These beggars live at Lake Isabella. I have become friends with these two mutt ducks and they almost got into my car today.
A great horned owl nest coming soon to a location near me!
This can has been in use for quite a few years at Lake Isabella, and I watched them for a month last year. The female began sitting on January 16, but on February 11-12, we had a huge ice storm and she disappeared (either the eggs froze, or she had to abandon the nest to find food because the male may have died, who knows). Hopefully, they will be more successful this year.
I have come across plenty of coyote scat at Armleder (eagerly picking it up hoping that it is an owl pellet) but today I found fur. This is way too long to be from a deer. Could a coyote gotten into a scuffle with one of the great horned owls over food? There were handfuls of fur scattered about a twenty-foot area. Chimp?
We went to a family get-together at my Aunt Caroline's tonight. Aunt Caroline is my Dad's older sister, and we don't see enough of her or her kids. I got to see cousins that I haven't seen since my grandma died in 1994. And I got to meet their kids....kids I have never met before. That's a shame, really.
The "Girl" second cousins (second cousins once removed? Heck, I don't know)
Isabelle, Lorelei, Hanna, Debra and Emily.
And here are some of my first cousins and their spouses. There are quite a few that didn't show tonight but it was nice to see everyone who did.
This is where I come from...and it's nice to go home sometimes.
