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

October Birds

The Red Tailed Hawks are still hanging around the fields even though the crops are off.




They are vary patient waiting for mice, but also very spooky. At times I could use a longer lens  




Here is a Magpie in the process of putting the run on the Red Tail.

Fly past!



The crows are starting to flock up getting ready to move south. Lucky birds!



the next two photos are of a Hairy Woodpecker that landed on a tree beside the truck.

I have always like crows. Why? I couldn't say. Much like you, I long for a better lens.....

Awesome to see the woodpecker! Once in a while we will get a hawk around here too, but those little birds do gang up on the hawks...and our dog Ginger often barks at them to help us scare them away so they don't bother our chickens.

Like the way the Hairy Woodpecker is looking up.
