I don't keep this blog updated as I should. I logged in tonight to add Eastern Meadowlark to the Birds Observed. One crashed into the patio window and was stunned. I put him outside the dog area...he should be fine. Bigger bird than I thought.
I've been clearing due east of the house. There was almost a straight line of dead cedar. It's taken a year working on and off and I actually now have a new trail that goes directly from the circle in front of the house to the pasture gate between the homestead and the goat pasture. There has been a lot of burning and rock hauling involved in that project.
