Gifts from Nature—Wednesday, May 18, 2016

My first gift from nature  is a new bird to my feeders!  I am so excited!

Sharpened A Western Tanager!  I’ve never seen one here before.  The website says they are woodland birds.  It just may be passing through.  Only time will tell.

BearThe bears are back.  A mom bear (sow) and one cub have been spotted (several times) just below our farm…running along the fence line.  Another bear has been bothering a bee hive over about two miles from us.


Saturday is the first day of May’s Full Moon…this year it is a Blue Moon complete with a sighting of Mars!!!  You can read all about it here! 

Full Moons

I hope the sky is clear for you, wherever you might be!  To see the bright, bright light of the moon and the red planet Mars will be a gift of a lifetime!

  1. ooh: bears. it’s not the bears but the wrackoonz, which is why we close the garage door every nite! pretty bird: I think … not sure, we have a usual contingent of similarly-colored birds. and, of course the hummers are back, and a (s)heron each day goes fishing in the pond …

  2. Linda, I grew up in Delta, went on many a Sunday drives with my parents on the Western slope, hiked, fished, hunted and lived in Colorado all my life and I have yet to see a bear in the wild in Colorado. I have seen them in Canada and Alaska and they are beautiful animals. Your picture gives me hope I will see one in Colorado.

  3. Oh thank you for the reminder of the blue moon, hooray! I love the tanager. Nature is being good to you for sure. Didn’t realize you had bears — pretty cool as long as they stay off your front porch ;>)… some people have seen them in the nature area next door here. But I have never.

  4. Birds often get blown out of their natural range during storms.

    Didn’t know there were bears around other than in the mountains. Looks like it could be dangerous
