I hope you and Gary will heal quickly Judi. :)
Bursitis is a pain but can be dealt with. I've had it in both shoulders for over 30 years.

Hello friends

Until yesterday it has been hot & humid. Even working outside early is not much help. A front actually made it all the way down & into the gulf. More comfortable outside now but summer will be back shortly.

Hope healing comes quickly, Judi & Gary. Take care.

Thirty years is a long time to live with pain, Scott. I know you are well versed in that. You are a strong willed man with a great attitude. :)

Iona, Carolyn, good to hear from you.

I'm thinking that growing older is making me stupid. I fell while cleaning the ceiling fan and have a big purple stamp to commemorate the experience.
Evidently I'm too old to stand on the bed to reach the fan. Why didn't I use the step ladder? :dunno:

The kids are off galavanting for the weekend so we are on "cat duty", pardon the pun. :)

Good day wishes all.
:bye 1:

Sorry about your fall Naoma. Good to hear it wasn't anything worse than the bruise. :)
We are not getting stupid! Life is just continuing to educate us whether we want it or not. :mihihi:

Back yard report here.

Osprey adults are around, soaring daily, sometimes perching atop the high dead branch nub. No fledglings sited yet.

A hawk & its fledgling, maybe red shouldered, are around daily too. The fledgling squawking repeatedly from the nearby trees. The parent landed on a tree stub near & picked at prey. Binocs helped. ;)

How about you guys backyard?

In backyard have cardinals (gorgeous), chickadees, finch, lots of little birds, hawks, and around and about eagles!
It's fabulous to see them daily. We have blue heron, snowy egrets (everywhere), ducks, mallards, egyptian geese, regular geese, blackcrowned night heron, little green heron, etc.

It's been a bit cooler for a few days delightful. My cat Mieko had surgery to remove kidney stones and is slowly recovering from surgery....if I could just get her to eat it would be good. I am sorry for your bruise Naoma, and wow Scott 33 years with bursitis!
We all have something or other. Cool bear reports....Good Night all.

Cool that you're seeing the osprey and hawks regularly Naoma. :)
Nothing exotic around my yard. The most entertaining are the resident pair of crows who have 3 young this year. I put out a bigger bird bath for them and they love it. It was fun watching the adults teaching them. They can be a little noisy tho. :mihihi:

You have a wonderful selection of birds around Carolyn. :)
I hope Mieko's back to normal soon. The bursitis is no big deal if I stick to what I know I should or shouldn't be doing.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. :)

Good morning all. :wave:

Iona, Gabby is still in same position this morning. :)

Great bird observations everyone. They are so enjoyable to watch. I've finally learned some new bird calls/songs. It's always a challenge when they are in the trees hiding. :)

Carolyn, your neighborhood sounds like a bird resort. :)

Judi, you haven't mentioned Shine this summer. Seen him/her lately.

Scott, crows are so smart as we all know. I've never noticed any with obvious juvies. I never thought of parents teaching babes about a bath. That had to be fun to watch.

Ok, so " we are not getting stupid".
There went my lame excuse for doing something careless. :D

:mihihi: to life lessons continuing.

:bye 1: Later.

Naoma, we all do have accidents, whether older or younger, it happens. I hope you heal quickly.

Of course we have crows here too, owls of all kinds, etc.......The Woodlands is just that......woods, so birds are here.

The adults had to teach the young crows how to drink out of the bird bath properly, then they brought all sorts of food items to soften Naoma. I wasn't too thrilled seeing the rat they dropped in tho. :mihihi:

Awwww, Iona The pups are precious & so many of them. :rh:

I never thought of the parents needing to teach the babes to drink, Scott. I just assumed it was instinct to know how to drink.
A rat, ewwww :D

The juvie hawk floated down into my yard today and stood on the ground looking around before flying off. I haven't heard it screeching for food as much today. The osprey was back soaring & then on the perch it likes.
Mostly I have cardinals & lots of wrens right now. The wrens sing really loud for a such a small bird. I replenished my birdseed after being out for a week or two so I should see a bigger variety back again.

Carolyn, I have woods all around here too. Most yards also have trees. I have all the usual birds you'd expect. We don't have scissor tailed flycatchers like in Tx. I miss watching the beautiful birds & their aerial displays. We do have Swallow Tailed Kite here & they are fun to watch too.

Good Evening Wishes All :bye 1:

Naoma, sounds delightful in the bird aspect. I forgot to mention hummingbirds who have just started to come. They love my hamelia tree and usually one does not let any other hummers here, we'll see. The one my husband has seen, which I have not as they hide from me, is brown.

Iona, thanks for the info on the pups, wishing them all success!

Thanks for the puppy updates, vids, and pic Iona. :)
I could see #4 breathing eventually after all their work, but did she make it?

Cool hawk encounter along with your other yard visitors Naoma. The Swallow Tailed Kite is a beautiful bird. :)
The young crows knew how to drink but they were just putting their bills straight down into the shallow bird bath. The parents taught them to turn their heads sideways to do it more efficiently.

Great that you're seeing the hummers now Carolyn. I haven't seen my regular around here for a month now but maybe that's just because there are so many flowers to use. :)

Hey Scott Yes little #4 is doing great. When #5 popped, Carlene handed #4 back to Judy. Judy continued to work on her, and all of a sudden little started yelling and has been doing fine ever since. She was even climbing all over her siblings to get to the milk bar.

Unless something changes all but one are girls. They will recheck in a couple days.
