Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

For All You Wildlife Fans!

I was out walking the fenceline when I heard this wild clucking sound. This is the reason why I generally have a camera in my pocket.

This mother partridge (or Ruffed Grouse) was very, very upset with me for getting too close to her chicks.
I saw three chicks take off and fly for cover, but was unable to get pictures 'cause they were so fast. There were about the size of a cow bird, and really speedy!

The hen was bristling and would make a run at me, then try to get me to follow away from the direction the chicks went.

Finally, she flew into the tree and at that point I figured it was time to let her be.

She gave me a half hour of entertainment that you can't put a price tag on.
