The strawberries are ripening, new kittens in the barn and the chicks are hatching. You can tell the kids are having fun due to the need for baths every night! They bring in more garden than they leave out. Hope everyone else is enjoying their last couple of days of spring.

You're right, Katrina!

Both our boys are home from college and are actually *helping* out around the place! The grass and garden are still green, our new chicks and poults are growing quick, the old flock is laying well. We've got cliff swallows building their second nest in the barn right now--these are new to us, as we've had only barn swallows 'til now...bluebirds are singing all over the place.

Oh well, I'd better get back to work.
take care, and enjoy it all!

We have about 40 plus wild ducks on the lake right now. Pairs of Pied Bill Grebes, Red Neck Grebes(rare), Red heads, Malards, Buffle Heads and another type I am tring to figure out what they are, never seen them befor! A week ago I only had a few Mallards on it. Now there appears to be mating pairs all over it. Last year was not so good they all left early?? Maybe this year will be different I hope. The level of the lake is down but I think there is enough reeds for nests still. Mark H.

Hey Mark, isn't it nice to know you have a place for them to nest? It's hard to tell how many other ponds have dried up. We have had a few different ducks here also. I am still trying to find out what they are. We have watched a pair of swans this year but see no cygnets so maybe their nest didn't make it.
