Just a Couple Bird Photos

Like the title says, just a couple bird photos. That’s all I really have to say.

New Birds At The Feeder

I was glancing out the side window and there it was, a Scarlet Tanager. The Tanager then flew to the front feeders where I could get a photo of it. It’s raining, so the birds are quite wet. lol

Also, I put up a platform feeder the other day. I’ve been noticing that many of the birds like the platform better.
The bottom two photos are from this evening, quite a busy feeder.

Drive About

Got out for drive in the boonies today. I drove out to Big Erik’s Bridge and followed EriK Rd until the turn to Northwestern Rd and drove Northwestern Rd until it’s end at Triple A Rd near Eagle Mine. Then took Triple A until Ravine River Rd then back to Skanee Rd and home. Northwestern Rd is one washed out road these days, it’s always been tricky, but this spring has really done a job on it. The Subie did a great job over the washouts and through all the rough stuff, just have to be careful due to still needing new tires. Triple A Rd is also quite a mess, but that’s due to all the logging on the road. The loggers have really fucked up a nice drive. I didn’t get out much, as the skeeters were out in force today and I didn’t feel like putting on bug dope.

Also, happy birthday to my mom, she would have been 100 years old today.

Mowing

I wanted to stay around the house today and go things, didn’t want to be in the weekend crowds. I’ll most likely go out tomorrow morning while the churchies are at their gatherings. Sooo, I’m mowing, just around the house, about an acre and a half. I tell ya, not sure who long I’ll be about to do this without a riding mower, it’s getting to be too much for me.
Anyway, I have to get back at it (was just taking a break) before it gets too damn hot, it’s already 77°F.

Long Weekend

I have a four day weekend this week. What am I going to do? Probably not much. I’ll go out for a drive at least one of the days, but other than that, I have no idea.
Hmm, I thought I had something to say, but I guess not, at least here.

Finally

The ex-owner(s) are picking up the rest of their stuff today. He has made one load in a pickup so far and he’ll be back with a trailer to get the rest in a little while. I’m glad it’s “him” picking it up and not “her”, he’s ok, but it’s her that’s turned into a bitch. I haven’t heard anything more about her taking me to court for money she thinks I owe her. It will be good to have their crap gone, it was suppose to be gone before snow fell last fall.

Update: They are done! Now they can stay the fuck away.
