There are still sounds in the backyard of geese and swans flying, some at night they seem to like to fly at night a lot!

emoticonthat is a Great story Rastus!!I can picture it clearly!I know how ugly the geese can get I am sure it was an experience!Yes I believe there is a pair of nesting swan in our lake but there are a bunch nesting in the adjoining lake across the road-they are connected by a stream.There are some in a lake just down the road as well!We had quite a few introduced into this area a few years ago and now they are thriving as well as the geese!

Do they nest on that little lake Gingerstartdust? One time I went to a man's place that raised swans and he had a pair nesting. We went out to look at their huge nest they made and she came off her nest with wings spread and beak WIDE open, hissing and honking..WOWOWOWOW that scared me half to death. I ran like a maniac all the while being laughed at by the owner. I am sure he knew what was about to happen and got his kicks out of watching me freak out! Now that I think about it though it makes me laugh too...I bet I had that deer in the headlight look ya know LOLOL!

Swans are the most awesome water bird! We have a certain pond not far from where I work that is absolutely full to the brim of Trumpeters at migration time. Breathtaking!

Yesterday when I was driving to work, I had just crossed the river and saw a huge bird flying about 25 feet above my car. I thought MAN THAT WAS HUGE so I slowed down and two more followed it. They were three eastern wild turkey hens flying from one side of the timber to the other across the highway. WOW....that was amazing. If you have never heard one take off from the ground...they sound like a Boeing 747! I LOVED IT!

It is an unusually warm 70 degree and sunny day in Iowa in November. A huge flock of pelicans flew over our heads very low. Amazing how graceful they are for such big birds. They went down at our neighbors big pond but I couldn't get close enough to get a decent picture.

we had a nor'easter blow through today. the snowflakes were huge. it was fun but weird. i kept thinking about all the animals that haven't yet stored enough food...tomorrow i am going to re-fill my feeders - they've been empty for a few days...tsk tsk on me! ...over the last month we've had a squirrel tap on my front door. when he does, i give him a piece of bagel with peanut butter and seeds on it. he'll take it right from my hand. my daughter calls him "mr. squirrely"...

my neighbor has a tree on the property line which drops its leaves into my yard every fall. its actually kind of funny, if you happen to see it as they're starting to drop - its an on-going cascade of leaves. i swear, the tree will go from full to bare in about a day and a half. well, this year the tree held another surprise for us. it grew berries! thousands of them which have attracted all sorts of birds and animals. in the 12 years i've lived here, it has never borne fruit - i didn't even know it was supposed to! it turns out it's a mulberry tree. who knew????? baltimore orioles, robins, squirrels, woodchucks, ahve all been invading my backyard for these juicy treats. i love it!

yes ginger, i live in a small town. i am sandwiched between 2 conservation areas, which i love. unfortunately we have a large population of homeless cats. so far they have had no luck catching any birds or squirrels from my feeder. a neighbor of mine managed to catch a few and handed them over to animal control. hopefully they have homes now. we have so many different animals around here: deer, coyote, fisher cats, woodchuck, etc...in addition to all the birds. we have had the occassional wild turkey in our backyard, and there's a rather large flock of them in the meadow. it really is a beautiful place to live!

my neighbors went away on vacation and parked their car in front of their garage, to dissuade break-ins. the problem is, the car is right next to my bird feeder. the ferral cats are hiding under it, and have come close to catching a few ground-feeders. emoticon

Ginger, I've seen some of your pics of your yard and it does look beautiful. My yard and gardens are always a work in progress but it does get us out in the fresh air.

I've got to stop on my way home from work today and get more bird seed. I do love having them in my yard.

well my backyard thought are many this time of year and most of them center on what to weed first or what to plant next.I always seem to add something new every year and then end up having to take care of it and believe me after all these years there is a LOT to take care of!Guess I forgot to plan for that while I was planting all those years!It is so beautiful when it all blooms though it makes all the years of work worth while.I want to get my yard certified like Peggi!Just need to get on it!

LOL I do not know a lot I just read a lot and some of it gets stuck in there most of it is useless clutter.Here is a link to an egg chart. My guess is it is the same chickies they can lay many colours .I get pinl ones and speckeled ones people love to buy them. I just got 6 more of the chicks LOL I am going to try incubating my pea fowl eggs I have 6 of them now :) OMG how cool would that be if it worked. Spring is here I got my goat babes yesterday I took so many pictures of them .
Have a great day :) www.ithaca.edu/staff/jhenderson/chooks/dua

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

The americauna lay the green eggs. Don't know how they arrive at the turken cross. Do you have any birds that look fluffy around the face like the are wearing ear muffs? If you do those would be the green eggers www.ameraucana.org/index.html Here is a link they have a photo section they are cute and come in so many colors I really think they are very popular birds.
DH ordered me a incubator to try to hatch my peacock eggs he got me a nice one that can do all different size eggs Woo hoo I am so spoiled LOL
Glad it is finally warming up for you Too.Overcast and odd here today thundar lightening wind and 12 rain drops wish it would really rain
HUGS Have a nice day tomorrow

Oh triplets would be really cute. I am in love with the boer goats I love the floppy ears LOLI am getting pygmies though they are smaller and eat less.
I love bunnies too. Their pooh makes the best fertilizer .
These bunnies are sweet and huggable. I have had some killer bunnies too.
Hope you won't get any flooding
It was over cast here all day and we had black clouds and wind but no rain drops. We could really use it.
Stay warm and dry
HUGS
