We went to the Burley Golf Course to spend the day with Bear. It was a great day. I stopped to pick up loaves of bread to feed the ducks and geese, but discovered that they are not used to being fed. Golfers are way too busy for that! They scurried off when I threw bread at them. Mandy did a great job driving the cart in an attempt to herd them, but they slipped into the river. When we drove back from the back 9, we could see that they had found our offerings!
This is the youngest family.This is the family with 3 teenagers!
If you look really closely you can see them out in the fairway!
They both scurried into the water when we threw bread at them!
It's hard to see but a pair of Mallard ducks are sitting out on the fountain
After having the irrigation water on most of the day, there was quite a puddle, or should I say birdbath out in back. I caught quite a few bathers there. It got me thinking that I need a birdbath somewhere for all my little feathered friends to drop by and enjoy!
Lately, I've notice a pair of Magpies doing a lot of squawking over by Noah's pasture. The other day I looked up and saw a huge nest. Today when I looked out in the field, it was apparent that Mama and Papa Magpie were giving flying lessons to their brood.
These are some of the youngsters on the fence.
Mama squawks from the power line overhead.
Papa sits in the tree squawking flight commands until they all end up over on the branches. It was quite fun to watch! Just call me bird lady! I've sure had fun bird watching this spring!
