A Bird in the Hand—Thursday, June 25, 2015

SHOur stupefying heat has broken! Yesterday a big storm blew in, crashed around and blew out–no real rain.  But right behind it was cool air!  Enough cool air to feel like an early fall day! It isn’t, but it is a nice.

SwallowThis little Swallow was a little puffed up this morning waiting for the sun to break through the clouds.

QuailWe have been seeing lots of the Gambel’s Quail in the hollows and valley’s along the hillsides of the farm.  This one was trying to keep us from the nest!

Owl-in-treeBoomer and I saw Ruth the Wise Owl…she was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over there, that’s why the photo is so blurry. Boomer bayed at her.  She did not respond.

More-lovelyThen there is this lovely (does anyone know what type of bird this is?)  I have several living in the old cotton wood tree in the yard.

Terry and I are just about caught back up…only hay to haul and wood chips to scatter on in my yard. Sure is a good feeling.  The ditch rider cut the water back, we will have to change water more now and not be able to set as many rows.  It can all be done, it just takes time.

I hope each and everyone of you are having a perfect summer day.

Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,

Linda
