Little lambies, Wood duck report, tree cutting

We're on Day Two of removing dead trees. They are dangerous, and along the walking paths. One branch is on the wood duck box, and we had to remove dead ones to free it up. Unfortunately, the Wood ducks are nesting around the pond earlier than last year. I didn't realize. They don't seem too disturbed as the Wood duck nesting box #1 has 10 eggs or so. I've opened the newest box, and something has been in it, smoothing down the shavings. I wouldn't have opened them, as I figured they were off in the marsh. I'll keep a watch. We had 5 hatch last year.

In the meantime, I'll show you our trip from our drive. Lots of little babies about! I asked hubby to stop, as they were so cute. Dirty little hooves. One was quite interested in a black bird. Then had to go nurse again!

As I was taking photos, the traffic roared by. I'm amazed at the risks people take. I know I preach to the choir, but somebody out there loves you or your victim.

So much news to report! Shortly, I'll have to go back out and rev up the lawn tractor and haul in more of our wood. I'll have to have my Wheaties first. Everything aches, but there are no bugs, and it beats a normal exercise work out! It's wonderful getting out into the open air.

Wheaties??? I think hash browns, bacon, eggs, tomatoes and more toast, then go get that ride-on-quad bike!!! You are doing so well, and think when you light that fire, the aches and pains will all be gone.

A little change of scenery does a lot of good. There's too much traffic on a road of that type.

I can relate to the outdoor chore muscle aches after a winter of limited exercise. But it's wonderful to see temps warm enough to work outside again. Looking forward to continued updates on the wood duck box.
