Getting Away From The Kids For A Few Minutes?

Is it my imagination or are those Guineas?

Turkey vultures. They love old barns for nesting sites. Mom thought they were chickens.

We had 7 circling directly overhead while we planted fruit trees, pecan and butternut seedlings on Sat.

I'm guessing they were just waiting for either the wife or me to kick off.

It was a full day that will take a few days to recover.

Your farm is just north of the English River in the bluff complex, so you will see eagles, hawks, and buzzards surfing the breeze whenever you have southwest winds. We are south of a major drainage in So IL, so we don't get those shows unless we have thermal activity. I love buzzards! Spend some time on an interstate right-of-way where buzzards can't work their magic and you will love them, too.

We have had good weather in the last month for shooting out behind the barn, and Susan's mother is really enjoying it. We took her to a range in St. Louis yesterday with CO2/Laser Glocks and interactive videos. She did pretty well, and blew away a bad guy coming at her with a knife!
