I just happened to look out my window and saw this Turkey Buzzard sitting atop a light pole with his wings spread - you might remember that I love these guys. So beautiful, except their really ugly heads - well none of us is perfect, right? He sat there for a while, looking back and forth:
He turned a little and brought in his wings:
This pose is not his most beautiful, but it's how I usually see Turkey Buzzards perched:
Then a little bird landed on the wire behind him. He sat there looking at the bird until it flew away. Probably a good move, little bird, but I don't think he was in any danger. Buzzards don't eat live animals, do they?
Here's another big guy - a Chihuahuan Raven sitting on top of a pole. These large birds seem to like perching up high and watching what's going on - looking for dinner, maybe. The Raven and Buzzard are such powerful looking birds.
And here's our current campsite - it's not really a site, just a flat area over the lake. We have good views, nice breezes, a dumpster close by, and a short walk to the showers. It's my "go-to" spot when the few dry camping sites are all occupied.
I've set up a little fenced area for Katie where she can watch all the little lizards running in the bushes. She's really in her element here - lots of the little critters:
Not a lot going on - and that makes me very happy right now. Katie and I are just enjoying our stay here. The weather has been good and we're in a pretty quiet spot. I'm starting to take my camera everywhere again. For a while I stopped taking it on walks because there just wasn't much to snap, but I'm enjoying all the birds here.
WELCOME to our newest Follower, Connie! Hi, Connie - Katie and I are happy to have you following along with us. I don't see any information about you or a blog, please let me know if you have one so I can pass along the link. :)
Also, I just noticed that I missed one of our new Followers - Cheeseheads4theRoad. They have been married for 43 years and have a beautiful family of kids, grand kids, and two dogs. They also have two motor homes - a 35-foot Class A and they just bought a 22-foot Winnebago Class C, which she calls the Granny Mobile. I like it! She says, "I love to travel and see new places. My husband just goes along with my dreams because he likes to see me happy (I think)." They have a Blogger profile, but there isn't a blog listed, so let me know if you do have one and I'll post the link. Welcome aboard!
From me and Katie, have a great Sunday, everyone! :)
