They love burdock around here. Their bodies are usually 1/3 covered in burdock clumps. They was all day yesterday in one patch here at the end of the field. :D

I really like pileated woodpeckers. They're impressive birds. I especially like the way they land on trees with authority. They fly in hard, then "Thwack!" against the side of the tree, and scoot around. They also sound cool. Sounds like something out of an African or South American jungle  :^)


Your stupid trivia for the day(maybe it's just me that's stupid)...


I looked up the name not that long ago to see what it means. It basically means "capped", as in wearing a pileus...

Yes, a week ago I saw a pileated hugging a telephone pole. He was dead still watching me walk by. A yard tree I took down 6 or 7 years ago was frequented by one picking on a rotten patch on the base of the tree. I cut that tree down and there was hardly any rot to it at all. It was 36" across and lots of solid wood left in that rot area. Oh well, winter was warm. ;)

I was watching youtube videos of hawks hunting turkeys yesterday. Red tailed hawk and also a golden eagle. I found a paper online written about goshawks hunting yearling turkeys. Had photos of one eating on one. Well, that's nature I guess. :) A fellow online, whom I know in person, said there was one recently preyed on by what was thought to be an owl. There has been a mean owl around his neighborhood. It knocked a guy down and has attacked kids. Not sure I believe it. They aren't nesting yet, might be just a story. That time of year. :D

We're feeling that Spring Weather will be happening very soon!

I even saw a flock of Robins this afternoon hopping around in the field next to the house!

Robins are a funny bird, some winters they are here in small numbers. But most of our robins here are wintering no more than 200 miles south of here around the Fundy coast. My aunt who lived in Sussex (southern N.B.) had robins every winter in the yard, and they have snow to.

Interesting.  Our robins do the same sorta thing.  They leave here in winter and head to the eastern shore of Maryland, or the western shore of the southern Chesapeake Bay.  Our Bluebirds hang here a little longer and certainly return earlier.  Both are back now.  In fact, our bluebirds scout nesting boxes in mid-February.

But 3 feet of snow and cold down near 0F in Feb makes a difference I suspect. ;)

 This guy and his brother and several girlfriends were in the yard 2 days ago. I saw him near dark in the pasture above the house yesterday.

   Robins came back about a week ago. I love to watch them doing a tug of war with a big old night crawler still firmly anchored in their hole in ground.

Three grouse (partridge) out in the back yard this afternoon. Ten feet away from the bird feeder. The other birds have the feed pretty well eaten up today, they won't get fresh feed until tomorrow.

Fun to watch, good to eat!

I just happened to see one budding along the hedge row behind the house earlier this afternoon, it was out there about an hour!

I think the season is closed here now!
