This morning I was on the phone with my Dad, and I looked out the window and here's what I saw:
When I checked my Field Guide to be sure I had the correct bird and spelling, I read the notes, and this is what it says:
I checked the notes because of another post I read this morning, and it also talks about Loggerhead Shrikes and how they catch and "skewer" their prey. That post is pretty graphic with the photos they posted of various little creatures hanging on barbed wire they found, and I found it very interesting. If you want to see Stan's Notes from my Field Guide in photos, check here: Where the Wind goes "A Fascination with the Loggerhead Shrike. I don't find it at all gruesome - come on, folks! We all have to eat, and it's fascinating how these little birds act like much larger birds of prey.
Here's Katie the other night when it was COLD in The Palms. If it's too late to turn on the heat and the temps inside start going down, I either put her in bed or put her coat on. On this night, she wanted to lay on her blanket, so on went her "bomber jacket." I think I'm going to have to get her something a bit longer - this really is a jacket and not a long-enough coat for really cold weather.
Such a little cutie. It's just like when my two children were babies - as soon as they fell asleep I always wanted to pick them up again, they looked so cute and peaceful. Of course, I didn't do that! But poor Katie, whenever she is especially cute while sleeping, I always grab the camera, and she wakes up. :)
I watched a bit of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this morning - I dont' know why, but it always makes me emotional. Geez. Here's a photo of Santa coming down the street in his beautiful float:
