May 26 – Tamboti

It was a very foggy morning and this time, it didn’t go away when the sun rose. First sightings after my foggy morning picture from my deck, but too dark and foggy to take pictures were a single male Impala, Helmeted Guineafowl road block, herd of Impalas, tiny mouse running across the road and some… Continue reading May 26 – Tamboti

May 17 – Satara

I woke up around 5 am as usual this morning and got myself something to eat & drink before heading for the gate. I didn’t want to be at the beginning of the lineup, since everyone will pass me anyway – so I waited until the gate was open before leaving. There was still a… Continue reading May 17 – Satara

Birds and Trees

Its only 5 months till Christmas – are you ready yet? It was 14C under a sunny sky with just a light breeze when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning.  I did enjoy the heat of the last few weeks, but am glad things are back to normal.  It will get… Continue reading Birds and Trees

Chester and the Kestrel

Not that  Chester and the Kestrel ever got together, but I have something to tell you about Chester and I saw the bird that may be a Kestrel again. Chester woke me up this morning at 5:45 when he had a seizure.  It only lasted a minute or 2, but it has been several years… Continue reading Chester and the Kestrel

Bathing Ducks

I did not even check the temperature this morning when Chester and I went on our walk.  I didn’t even check it when we got home and now around noon it is 27C with a predicted high of 33C and possible thunderstorms to follow.  It was very pleasant for our morning walk, so I am… Continue reading Bathing Ducks

Ducks, Beavers and Parcels

We have the usual ducks and occasional beaver today (of course), but added in another parcel delivery for fun.  I did not check the temperature before walking with Chester along the Red River, but my guess would be about 13 or 14C under a sunny sky.  It was nice and cool for a good walk. … Continue reading Ducks, Beavers and Parcels

Birds, Birds, Birds

Everywhere I looked on our walk along the Red River and even away from the river, I saw birds.  A lot of ducks, but other birds too.  It was 12C when Chester and I set out on our walk.  We took a little detour along the way – to check out a bird (of course).… Continue reading Birds, Birds, Birds

This and That

It was 14C this morning when Chester and I went for our walk along the Red River.  The sky to the east was a friendly blue and the sky to the west was threatening.  I didn’t think I saw any birds until I looked at one of the pictures I took and I didn’t see… Continue reading This and That

I Found Ducks

It was 19C with the humidity at 83% and a bright sunny sky as Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning.  No sign of our beaver, but I did find a couple of Wood Duck families.  I’m guessing that the mother duck was mother to both the clutches – her… Continue reading I Found Ducks

Ducks and Sparrow

It was cloudy and 15C when Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning.   It looks and smells like it will rain soon and the forecast says showers this morning, but clearing later today and are actually talking about temperatures in the high 20’s and up to 30C by Thursday –… Continue reading Ducks and Sparrow
