Every once in a while we need a reminder of the evils in the world. Just look at this rodent stealing the bird seed right out of the mouths of those cold and hungry feathered friends of ours.

This is one of many reasons Squirrel Patrol was formed. We ask you in the general population to not try to apprehend these tree rats. They can be dangerous and even vengeful, yes they have been known to caused blackouts to major population centers.

Angry Bird

Well hold on there Woody, don’t get your feathers all ruffled up. Those little rodent, Tree Rats also sleep in those trees, you could wait till he is sleeping and shove him out of the nest.
He already looks like he fell from the ugly tree and hit every branch on his way down, Winking smile

Mrs. Hummer


I took this short video this morning of our little friend Mrs. Hummer. She has finally started to trust me enough to feed from my hand. This is a female Ruby Throated Hummingbird, the male has a large red patch on his upper chest and we don’t see him much.

Waiting to see these humming birds is about the only thing that gets me through the long cold winters and as silly as it sounds hand feeding this one is one of my biggest thrills. I have always been fascinated by birds and the hummers are my favorite.

Today’s quote:

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw

Maggie’s fortune cookie: A bird feeding out of your hand is worth the world to an old man.

Against the wind…

Captain M. Mae here,

Are you like me? Does it sometimes feel like you are flying into the wind?
Well it’s true there is a lot of flapping going on without much progress.

I think I’ll just stand here and enjoy the view.
