Cure for Dog Nests


No more nests. The dog is spoiled enough, I thought, in her insulated little shack with the burlap door and a big green fuzzy blanket. It got down to -30C and Hubby kept insisting that I put straw in her house too. After cooking her dog bones, drying her frozen hide and saving from everything […]

All About a Dugout #6


I have to add to #5 because that wasn’t all the problems I met with. As I make my way around the pond to see what other damage there was, lo and behold, I found a red-wing blackbird nest and another unknown variety that had been hidden from view.    We both thought the laying […]

Bombing Blackbirds


  No wonder “curiosity killed the cat” as the saying goes. I stuck my nose in where it didn’t belong today. Robins just take off when you approach. NOT Blackbirds. They are aggressive little things.

Surprise-5 Blackbirds

Video: All four Robin’s hatched


You can sure tell who’s the eldest of the four Robins. It’s the hungriest. I can hardly keep myself from touching their fuzzy little naked  bodies, but I know I dare not. I don’t want the mamma to desert them. The Video. Be a friend by sharing…

More Finds!!


                    Hubby found a secret treasure. If he hadn’t pointed it out, I never would have seen it. I had to move a limb away to take this shot, otherwise it was completely hidden. I pulled a big branch out of the way so I could get […]

More Robin Eggs


Do all Robin’s lay 4 eggs? This is the second nest with 4 eggs. It was right under my nose in the yard. This nest is higher than the last one that got emptied, so it should be fine. It’s in a bushy spruce about 4′ off the ground, so I won’t have to get […]
