A Majestic Visitor

July 30, 2017

Good morning.  Tis a gorgeous sunny day here in my little part of the world, and there's a tiny breeze  keeping it quite comfy.  I'd have been here posting much earlier but Joe came by early to tell me that we have company high up in our trees.  So, of course, I grabbed my camera and went outside to take some photos. 

High up in one of the tall trees in front of the house sat a huge hawk, just taking in all the sights and looking for his breakfast.  Here's a photo I took to show how high up this bird is.  I put in an arrow to show you where the bird is sitting, and then I enlarged that area to make it easier to see the bird.

It really is quite a majestic looking hawk.  Sitting way up there gives him a super view of all small critters that might make a tasty meal.  Here are a few more shots of our guest.

It must have had something specific in mind for breakfast, because several small birds were able to fly by unharmed.  Nearby, a tiny sparrow sits on a the edge of one of our roofs and calls out a warning to his family and friends.  Such a brave little bird.

Up high in another tree, sits a very brave young blue jay trying to alert his family to the nearby danger.  I've placed an inset in the photo so that you can see this little blue jay better.  These are very brave little birds.

I just looked outside to see if our guest hawk was still here, but he must have found a meal because he is gone.  At least now we can feed our little birds.  For obvious reasons, we don't put out any food for the birds while the hawk is here. 

Friday, I meant to post a kit for you, but I forgot.  So, I'll post it here today.  This is an old kit that I had made five years ago as part of a collaboration.  This is just my part of the kit.  I hope you can use it.

Here are your download links:


I'm not sure what Pogo and I will be up to today, but maybe I'll go grocery shopping this afternoon.  I haven't decided yet. although I probably should get it done.  This is going to be a busy week.  The company that supplies my oxygen concentrator is coming out tomorrow with a portable machine that they say will make me happy.  That remains to be seen. 

Also this week, the contractors will be here, along with a police detail, to resurface the end of my driveway.  In between all this activity, I need to get back to my "clean out" project.  Well, I've finished my coffee, and now it's time to get busy around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh Edna,
I don't know how I missed this awesome post of the hawk and blue jay. But wow... how very awesome and he really is Majestic. I guess I had my days mixed up because this morning Karyn came over to see if I wanted to have coffee with her and I said No but you go ahead. Rolled over and wondered, why is she here before the sun is up? Well it is not SUNDAY... duh.

Oh Edna did you find alternative parking for everyone? Your even going to have a police detail? My that is good news. Perhaps if the neighbors are parked out in the street they will get a nice little visit! But then again, the latest car accident may have curbed their tendency to park out in the street.

Have an awesome day my friend. Thank you for the kit but until I fix my computer woes I cant get it just yet. I will check and see if I already have it first tho.

Much love to you and my boy. Give Pogo lots of kisses from me and Cisco is sending Tail Wags! Love Beth and Cisco xoxoxoxxo
