Have been very busy of late

14 Sep

Last weekend, we were in Ottawa visiting with my oldest son and his family.  We had a great visit and it was wonderful to see the family again.  We don’t get together very often due to the long distance involved.  Had surgery late Monday and I am trying to heal from that. 

Bought some peanuts for the feeder today.

This morning it rained steadily.  Then it started clear up this afternoon.  By 4 PM, the sun was shinning.  After spending most of day cleaning (garage and downstairs), I decided to jump in the car and head down to Melbourne (Hyndman Road) for a late afternoon drive.  I haven’t been down that way for quite some time.  The fields are mostly corn and beans.  One rather large field on the south side of Hyndman is mostly tall, weedy-looking plants.  There were a lot of AMERICAN GOLDFINCHES in the weeds.  And I had fun watching an AMERICAN KESTREL flying from fencepost to fencepost.  Other then a few MOURNING DOVES on the wires here and there and a couple of tight flocks of blackbirds, there were not alot of birds to be seen.  I wasn’t gone long, just about an hour.  But it satisfied my need to get out.
