….when I step out my door. That way when I say things like “the Great Blue Heron barely cleared the house!!!” and “The Osprey was low enough I could see his markings with my bare eyes!!!” everyone will believe me instead of rolling their eyes….
Anyway I managed to catch a few pictures yesterday dispite my forgetting to bring my camera out with me at one point.
This Osprey was collecting nesting materials near me:
And then this Red-Tailed Hawk, with a notched wing, which makes it really easy to ID this bird, decided to claim a spot on my neighbor’s property as his, and proceeded to defend the surrounding airspace with great vigor. I managed to catch some of it on camera.
At any rate, the garden expansion is in progress, which is a good thing since I’ve been told I need to get the sugar snap peas in the ground NOW. Hopefully I’ll get them planted this weekend…..
