It was a cold and snowy day.  I had let the dogs out in the back yard and I heard this rustling in the tree in the neighbors yard.  I kept looking around and trying to figure out what was making that noise.  Soon a squirrel came into view,  it was stuffing leaves in its mouth from the oak tree.  That tree does not shed all of its leaves till springtime.  That squirrel was needing some leaves to keep him warm in its nest.

When I was still living in Dundas, the local squirrels used my two oak trees in the same way all winter long.  It was cute to see them scurrying about gathering leaves and running back to nest, while avoiding each other.  wink

I was so happy to release this Red Tail Hawk after she had been in rehab for awhile.  She was so ready to be free.  As you can see she is a mature hawk by her full red tail, hope that she will find a mate.

the Sandhill Cranes are arriving along with other birds.  I found a place where there was a pretty good number out in a field, they didn't seem to be to active, not really doing any display dancing which I think they are still tired from the trip here.




They set their wings and lower their legs like landing gear

There is a new webcam running on the Crane Trust Property to view the Sandhill Cranes

There was a change in the Sandhill Crane Cam for the Crane Trust,  this is updated now
