For today's entry, I thought I would share why I didn't finish the promised art from Sunday's entry. You see, I have been busy spying on the prairie birds...cormorants, pelicans, ducks, seagulls, canaries, robins, I think I spotted a flicker too... Oh, you're thinking, not birds again. Yes, it is my blog, so I can write about birds if I want... I also have been fishing, too. Again, please be quiet, I don't want you to reveal our secret fishing spot. I am sitting not too far away from it right now. Oh,oh, there are some people walking in front of me on the beach with garbage bags and picking up litter. I think they may work for the park. I am trying not to make eye contact. Oh,oh... I looked up and the guy said, "Good morning!" and then .... he asked, gulp, "How did you get Wi-fi in the middle of nowhere?"
Gulp, I told him, " I have an iPhone"
Then he replied.... gulp, "Right on!" and then left! Phew!
So back to the story, you can talk and breathe now, yesterday morning I observed an neat and wonderful thing. I want to call it Waterbird Leap Frog. At first there was one pelican.
|The cattle took notice in the distance!|
|Then a three seagulls arrived.|
Next thing I noticed cormorants, Canadian geese, about a hundred pelicans, and more seagulls joined.
|Before my eyes, a colony of birds formed.|
Then another, then another, then another group followed, until all of the birds had moved further east.
|The cattle came to watch and then turned, stunned!|
|Beat you back to the start!|
|Shall We Play Again?|
Well, I've used up my share of free electricity. Where is my father in law? My rump is very sore from waiting here, so I will sneaked back to my trailer and act like I was never gone, and eat a bowl of Special K with berries. Thanks for joining me and for being so quiet!
