    Two Hawks Hunting Out Back This AM

    There were two hawks hunting a squirrel in the back yard this morning. (They may have been young, because they weren't very good at it !) I couldn't identify the species .(Coloration was identical, so I'm guessing they had been nest mates.) Size: about half again the size of a dove. Color...

    Nature's Reality - from my Back Window

    I've been watching the frantic efforts of robins, starlings, and other song birds, as they try to keep their rapidly growing nestlings fed. I've also seen an abundance of crows-usually being chased and harassed by song birds - for good reason. This morning a crow lit in my back yard with a...

    "Odd" Rabbit Behavior

    (Odd to me, anyway !) Glancing out back window this afternoon, saw a rabbit feeding on something it was discovering on the newly-mowed lawn. Nothing unusual there. Rabbit got to fence-stopped-then rolled over on its back, and began twisting around with paws in the air - about like a puppy...

    Unknown Aircraft

    On Thursday, 09/06/12, at about 8:00PM, I noticed northbound aircraft lights-moving northerly direction at exceptionally slow speed (or so it seemed.) Went out and took 2 shots. 1 was just a blur-other a bit sharper. I tried to make out whether it might be the Navy dirigible, but it was too...

    New Sightings Out My Window

    Sighting #1 tonight was a Red-Tailed Hawk, which perched and posed on a chimney about 200 yards from the house. I squeezed off a few shots with shaking hands -using auto and manual focus. (I was shaking a bit as you will notice.) At about 8:00PM , the Navy Lighter-than-airship...

    Jemima Mount Re-Visited

    Like many of you, I have wondered for years about the name "Jemima Mount" -site of a geodetic survey marker-but hardly a mountain ! (I seem to recall checking the elevation once -many years ago-and coming up with a "lofty" 100' .) Keeping in mind some of the early "Pineys" had a humorous turn...
