Hello everyone on this another beautiful spring day. The sun is still shining a bit, but the clouds are quickly taking over. Still, it is nice out there so I just had to spend time with all the dangerous animals for a while. Speaking of dangerous animals, this one is actually not on the list, but…as far as I am concerned, it should be. I am referring to my friendly night visitor, that 8 foot (about 2.5 meter) long bear.🐻
I was sleeping, and heard a large bang outside. I was tired, but decided I better see what was going on. Poor Muffin. She was terrified. 🙀 The bear was standing up against the window pawing at it with his massive feet. But he was down and gone off the deck before I could get out there for a picture. Sigh. And he made a mess of all the boxes of stuff I have out there too. That was the noise I heard. If I hadn’t been so tired I probably would have been able to go out and get his picture. A friend of mine wants a picture of this bear, so I will have to go outside to get a decent picture. Oh well.
The authorities in charge will only do something if the bear is posing a serious risk to humans. I’m not human, I guess.😂 Sigh. So…I decided to spend time with the other dangerous animals, the chipmunks. Yes, they are classed as dangerous animals. Amazing really. At least they cooperate better than the bear. And they come out during the day which is nice, because I don’t sleep during the day. So that makes it easier.
Oddly, there is not as many birds around today. Even the fox sparrows are not here today. I’m glad I got those pictures yesterday,📷 might not be another chance this year. They go much further north for nesting, so the only time to see them is spring, and sometimes in the fall as they head back south. Spring is the best time though. The loons are back now, there was one fly over the house today laughing as he went. Yes, that one call sounds similar to a laugh. But they are well known for their lonely, haunting call, often done at night. Really, it sounds just beautiful. I could listen to it all night.
Just something short for today. I was planning something else actually, but it didn’t work out for today. I will try again for next Tuesday. I need to get better organized! 🙄 Muffin is sleeping a lot today, not good. That means she will want to be up tonight again. It’s hard when she gets her days/nights mixed up. Hard for me. Not her.😹
Thank you for joining me once again, I hope you will enjoy the rest of your day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
