Treasure Hunt

Could it possibly be   a bird I’ve wanted to see?   Oh no don’t fly away!   Please let me see   move for me,   turn your head so I can see   a Ruby-crowned Kinglet! YES!! ~~~~ The moment “Ruby-crowned Kinglet” is mentioned to any photographer or birder, the face is transformed … Continue reading Treasure Hunt

Introducing …

Below is a YouTube music video for your┬álistening pleasure as you read and view this post. Click┬áon it first┬ábefore you begin. It is┬áspecifically for stress.

Common Sense

Two days ago, New York State law was changed making it mandatory everyone must wear a mask while outdoors. Of all the idiotic things to mandate! Well, evidently some doctors spoke up immediately stating how unhealthy it is to wear a mask for people who run. That very same day at about 8pm, the law … Continue reading Common Sense

Refuge

As humanity collectively holds its breath waiting … waiting … for what is anyone’s guess, so many torn up in fear, the natural world goes on as if there is nothing at all wrong. It is with much relief I go to the places of wild that give me sustaining life and refuge outside this … Continue reading Refuge

Friday Wrap Up

This week! My posts have been brief for a reason. We lost our electric for 5 hours on Sunday due to an extremely bad wind and lightning storm. Poor Rusty who was sleeping on my bed, careened sky high when thunder clapped directly overhead. In midair he pooped he was that terrified. Never have I … Continue reading Friday Wrap Up

Gotcha!

I normally do not show three pictures of the same bird, but there are always exceptions especially when it comes to a bird I’ve been trying to capture for years. A gorgeous male Pileated Woodpecker was spotted almost immediately when I entered the park. Could it really be this easy when I’ve been “hunting” for … Continue reading Gotcha!

Getting There!

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far. To give you an idea of what I’ve done, I followed the “per plant” directions which state for each established plant, work 1 cup of fertilizer into soil around drip line. To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!
