The 2008 Journal
Mainly it is about the wildlife whose existence around our home follows a somewhat predictable pattern from year to year but still manages to be full of surprises with no outcome guaranteed. Since the first sighting of Flying squirrels in 1993, we have been fascinated by the variety of the wildlife to be observed and studied right here on our half acre. I have chronicled some of that activity for the last few years in a number of different formats. This year the schema will be simply a page or multiple pages per month. Follow the adventure by selecting each month from the menu.
Right on cue, the yellow Crocus appears on March 1. The white and purple actually showed up about t weeks later
The Robins are now beginning their endless search for the crawly things. Spring is just around the corner. I will be looking for nest building activity
Regular visitors beneath the bird feeders this Chipmunk cautiously emerges from subterranean quarters to catch a few rays of early March sunshine.
This young hawk has become a regular visitor. Always looking for an easy meal.
Believe this to be a Purple Finch pair
The biggest snowfall of the year blew in on March 7 and March 8. Ended up with about 10 inches.

Snow day - Well I had to check for the mail, and measure the snow and snap a few pictures. This Video will explain. Just click on the picture below for the streaming video. It is a large file best only for broadband connections.
The Snow went quickly , the good thing about late winter Snows. Oh Yeah, just had to build a snow man, the first one in at least 40 years
