"It takes many different talents to create a good world." So true and maybe one day it'll happen Carolyn. :)

Great timing to get your s'cap Iona. :)

No update tonight other than to say they embedded a media player in the previous two updates in case some weren't able to listen to the the interview.

Hi All....

Scott, I am glad you enjoyed my words. I keep hoping......

I had to put my 13 year old fuzzy kitty, Bibbo, to sleep today. I am sure she is happily scampering all around the Bridge. She was a great cat big furry short legged half Siamese, half tabby and so much fun. I rescued her 13 years ago and we had a great life together. My other three cats never interacted with her much so they will be OK, my grandchildren will miss her presence as she was so loving. We will too, but I have a great sense of peace and knowing it was right and the right time.

Sorry about Bibbo Carolyn. Even when we know it's the right thing to do it is never easy. :(
I know she had a wonderful life with your family. :)

Thank you Scott, Iona and Philjo........My description is slightly off, need to correct your mental vision. She was Long furry hair, not big as in a big kitty. She was small (about a bit less than 7 lbs) under a lot of long silklike hair, more hair than fur. She had the prettiest light blue eyes too. A lynx point kitty. My other kitties (3) have chosen to honor her by sitting where she would to be with me (and of course to appropriate the spot). We have perches and beds around and about as cats like variety and of course, sunbeams........if you see a sunbeam there will be a cat. :)

That was fascinating about loons, I hope this one can get enough food to go before ice sets in.
Have a happy Saturday,
carolyn

Thanks for the SWFL vid Iona. That would explain why you aren't catching them at the original nest as often. :)

Glad to read of your birthday being a good one Carolyn, sad you & kitts have to learn to live without Bibbo's presence.

A nice surprise looking out the kitchen window and seeing the yard bustling with ROBINS and several other birds. I've never seen so many robins in one spot before and the video only shows a small portion of them.

Golly, I hope the loon can get help. That poses a dilemma for the loon. I also hope we are updated. :)

Thank you Naoma. Bibbo was never part of the pack of my kitties so little effect for them. She was a loner but a sweet one. I miss her in little ways, while knowing she had a fabulous life.

Hi to all......Thanks Scott for faithful reports and the cool robin story. We get flocks of birds that cover our trees at times and it's so cool to see. Iona, glad to see the eagle sites you love so well.

Take care,
carolyn

Good Morning All.....

that is sad for the loon. I guess none of us saw that coming. Yet, nature's way. Thanks Scott.

i loved your robin video....watched it a few times. Sometimes I see a bunch of them in front of my house (migration?). Wildlife gives us joy.

A funny Bibbo story, forgive me, better to write than think. Bibbo was part Ragdoll, part Siamese, we suspect. She had very short legs so when she was a kitten we had a stool for her to get up to food, could not jump that far. Older she could. However, running across the wood floors was a hoot, her little legs went every which way as she scampered, not gracefully, with her long silky fur flying every which way, to go to the chair where I was for a few minutes to sit on the back of the top as an ornament and purr. Andis (goldendoodle) running is similar, she cannot get traction on the wood and while running almost slides to get to her toy. Those are the fun moments we cherish of having pets.

catch you later,
carolyn

Cute story about Bibbo and Andi on the slippery floors Caroline. When Kitty & Buddy used to chase each other they had the same problem but Kitty handled it a lttle better than Bud. Thanks for reminding me of that. :)
I read that some of the northern robins will spend the winter around here and others will move farther south so I'm guessing the ones in my yard were northern migrants passing through.

Good sleep for the bears when they rest for the winter. Sharon's reports are wonderful, thank you Scott.

It's good that memory brought you a smile Scott. It's the little things isn't it? I miss the scampering. The three now are somewhat harmonious. Andi and Bleu love the cooler weather which has come of late.
Take care all,
carolyn

All the little things are special Carolyn and are a constant reminder of what fun they were to have around. I still miss them all. :)

Always such a lovely view from that nest Iona. Thanks. :)

The young Sharp-shinned Hawk visited the yard again today. I know it's a regular visitor seeing as how I see it so often and am not at the kitchen window very much.
I forgot to mention that it landed on the deck railing a few days ago and checked out the feeders and layout of things on the deck. It has seen many birds there so it must have been looking for a way to grab one as later in the day it apparently made the attempt but hit the patio glass door. I always keep the blinds partially closed and this is the first time a bird has hit the glass with the blinds like this. It must have been too intent on it's potential meal. Fortunately it was able to fly off after a few minutes and looked perfectly fine today. Hopefully it has learned not to try hunting on the deck again.

:wave: & :( the loon didn't make it. It's hard to know of these things even if they are nature's way.

A few times, in watching & listening in nature, my curiousity has gotten the better of me only to regret investigating.

Scott the robins are always fun to watch foraging, especially in flocks.
The hawk certainly loves your birdbath. Interesting the water didn't look a bit worse for the ware. Still nice & clean. :)
I'm sure the glass door taught him a lesson, IF he can remember what happened. :D

Beautiful views & eagles, Iona.
I guess it's feeling like fall in Ohio. We started the morning at 84 deg. :ohmy: Waiting on the cold front to come thru now. :thumlft:

Carolyn, I've tried placing rugs & runners for Z to use for traction but he still chooses to lay on the bare floor. He does his share of slippin' & slidin' inside especially if Sabel is here. She's gone from size minuscule to giant! :ohmy:
