Catbird

On yesterday’s walk with Chester along the Red River, I found a Catbird singing.  He was perched in a dead tree where I have managed to get a few other bird pictures this year.  The birds that sing in the trees with leaves are much to hard to find for pictures, so I appreciate it when they perch and sing in a dead tree.  🙂

I only got a couple of pictures of him before he flew off though.

Even without leaves, he managed to hide a bit behind the branches and keep his back turned, but I can see enough of him to identify anyway.

Chester still continues to be siezure-free.  He had an appointment at the vet on Friday and she is pleased with how he is doing.  There are a couple of concerns, but nothing to loose sleep over.

We’re finally going to get some heat today.  It is supposed to get up to 30C, and that often brings thundershowers – which are forecast for tonight.    Its been kind of nice not having to use heat or air conditioning much at all so far this summer, but I’m turning the air conditioner on today.  The next few days are supposed to be in the high 20’s C and feel like over 30C.  That usually means high humidity.  I’m looking forward to the heat, as long as the air conditioning is working.

I may have a Wal Mart rant coming up, but I’ll give them a couple of days to respond to my problem before posting it here.

So far on Africam today, we have seen Elephant, Impala, Black Eagle and chick, Waterbuck, Kudu, Nyala, Spoonbill, Wildebeest, Egyptian Geese and our Cheetah Salome with her cubs.  Click here to see all of today’s pictures.
