  Smiley from millan.nethi bloggiepals,

the wildlife has definitely made things more enjoyable lately.
i'm seeing all sortz of creatures along the river trail.
we're talkin' snakes (yikes), ducks, beavers, rabbits, frogs (yep!),
turtles, fishies, and birdz, birdz, birdz!

so this week's wildobs adventure  means one thang..
 once again my bloggie has gone to the birdz!

take a look through
my wildobs notebook to see my recordings!

Journal entry #1
wait a minute, that's me! at the river's edge..
the river is filling in with tall grasses except where the water
keeps flowing.. cheese!


Journal entry #2
this is over by Nordude's favorite frog pond.
See the ripple in the water.. that was this huge trout,
who thought he was a shark. a reactive shark!- flipping his body outta the water
and then had the nerve to lunge or i mean, swim close to me
with his big top fin sticking up!

of course, someone missed the shot

Journal entry #3
 the frogs are out like nobody's bidnez.
he's a big one too! funnie...haven't seen him since
Norwood's frog mishap..huh.


Journal entry #4
here's where the bird part comes in..
the most common bird around herah is the red-winged blackbird..
and their sounds Conk-a-reeeee back at ya!
 after failed attempts trying to catch the many other bluejays,
cardinals, and red-headed woodpecker...

i finally was able to get on video!! the mysterious
huge white bird that flies over the river daily
now i'm no expert.. i think its

 the great egret--
turn the volume up because we usually hear it coming before we see it!


Journal entry #5
ok, look.. there's tula much action going on. 
must sit down. can i get a bag of chips & a soda?
promise not to litter.

Happy Weekend to you all!
stay tuned for more wildobs next week..

Excellent nature walks, though we must admit we try to eat more of nature than watch it.
