Saturday Sharing...

It is here!
Saturday!
The last thing Mom does each afternoon at work is put the mail out in the box. As she went to get bakhk in the Xterra she thought the khlouds looked khool so she grabbed the flashie beast!
PLUS, it is nice to see the kholour BLUE again!
We've had multiple days of khloudy/overkhast/grey/gray/hazy/etc!
Here I am waiting fur the weekend fun to start...
Khan't woo tell!?!
I'm glad woo enjoyed my short video of my racing! That is a fairly khommon event around here but usually it is too dark to khapture it since I often revise the khourse to inkhlude springboarding off the living room sofa!
What is REALLY fun - and I'll try to get my flashie beast operator to khatch - is when Fred will put his arm as a 'bar' fur me to leap over OR when The Doggy Nanny doesn't realize I'm doing my cirkhuit and gets in my path. I just change khourse and jump over the loveseat!

A few of woo khommented how no one really seemed phased by it! Well, aren't most that live with Sibes kind of 'used' to 'things'???

******
You'll see that some of the were gathered fur resting befur taking off again...
One of them took off!
Now fur some sad news that reinforces that Mother Nature is truly in khontrol when it khomes to survival.
6/12/2009 :: Fledgling NewsThe blue-banded female remains on the nest ledge. She appears to be in good health. She is probably the youngest and is taking her good time before fledging.
The green-banded female was rescued from the street last evening and released on the roof of the Rachel Carson Building- she returned to the ledge this morning.
The yellow and red-banded females continue to take short flights back and forth from lower rooftops.
The white-banded male has not been as fortunate. He was discovered injured along a nearby rail line this morning. Both of his legs were severely injured. He was transported to Dauphin County Wildlife Rescue Center where he will be euthanized.
Like Ricky's male pf in Kholumbus oHIo, it is sad to see but it happens. Ricky's drowned in a fountain near their nest area.
From the start, Pawsylvania's policy has been to NOT name the birds. They are referred to by their sex and band kholour.
******
Mom has been enjoying watching the eagle 'chikhks' - they are flapping away. The still khamera has been operational again but she hadn't been able to snag any good shots to share.
The same thing goes fur the barn owlettes! Just nothing post worthy but she's been trying!
******
I'll be bakhk tomorrow to share a tease of this weekend's transport passengers! Akhtually, Mom will be meeting two of them in Harrisburg Sunday morning but that is where they will split up. She'll be chauffeuring a khutie to Hamburg PA!
Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

Hi Khyra
thank you for sharring the cloud show. We love to look at them, but we also love some blue sky and sun.
Yes it is hard to understand some things- things that just don't make sense. But yes, it is mother nature. (so my mom tells me).
Thank you for always sharring the "real world" with us.
Have a wonderful weekend and tell mama to drive safe
love

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Nifty clouds! My human, K, takes cool cloud pics all the time, just like your mom! Aren't clouds just great? Glad you finally had some blue sky - helps cheer up the heart, doesn't it?

I am curious as to what you were dreaming about in the pictures...

Suka

p.s. Thanks for the birdy updates. I am sad to hear of the male birds.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Those are real purrty clouds! Hope your mom has a safe trip!!

P.S. My Tiger Tiger... Mom thinks he is stuffed... but sometimes he growls at me!

Martha Basset said...

Hi Khyra
The clouds looked like puffs of cotton wool against the blue.
We can see you are all ready and waiting for the weekend!
The fun starts here - or there in your case.
Those little birds are having some adventures!
Imagine one has been rescued already - great that they are tagged!
We think the one who is taking her time before leaving the ledge is quite right - you really do need to be ready to face the big bad world!
Have a great weekend.
love

ocmist said...

You are so beautiful... and your tail is so fluffy it almost looks as big as the rest of you in that one shot! Mom says you look like a soft pillow she'd love to hug.

So sorry to hear about the PF male. It is sad when you watch for so long and then something happens... Some of the nestlings we've watched have had problems too... so many don't seem to make it.

pughy said...

I quite agree about the humans appearing not to notice, my dad just carry's on with what he is doing when I am zooming around like crazy, he is so used to it.

you are letting your mum use the transport again this weekend, you are such a good woofie.

So sorry to hear about ther little bird but as your mum says it does happen, but sad all the same.

Cant wait to see what you will get in a box next week.

Hugs your floof pal GJ xx

Maggie and Mitch said...

Have a great day.

Beautuful sky clouds Khyra. It is nice and sunny here today. (Our human is happy as she says it is good clothes drying weather out there, whatever that is.. we just like hanging out in the garden...hehe)

Thank you for your comments about our pc problems, it is nice to know it is not just our pc or something wrong with it. It is so frustrating though.

We are sorry to read about the birdie.

Have a great weekend. :-)

Isn't the sun great. We are supposed to have a decent weekend - thunderstorms, but then it is June.

Nature is a tough boss.

The OP Pack said...

Are you sure you haven't relocated to OP? We had those same beautiful clouds the other day too. Too bad it is all gloomy and gray out there now.

Happy Saturday, the OP Pack

jan said...

We never get clouds like that in spring or summer. Our human put them on her desktop. She calls it wallpaper. We wanted her to put a picture of you, but we lost.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

I always hate on the nature shows when some animal dies ... like in "Winged Migration" where the injured bird was set upon by crabs. But I guess that's life in the state of nature, nasty brutish and short ...

cg said...

Hello! Sorry for not stopping by more often...thank you so much for your messages... Have a great weekend Khyra!

Martine said...

We love the clouds!!!! We wish it was lovely like that at our place!

Its great when the weekend finally gets here isn't it? Tell your Mom to be safe travelling this weekend. Can you tell me how you link to my posts? I am still learning since I am new and can't quite figure that one out. ~Twix

Amber and Nala said...

Hope you have a great weekend Khyra...that blue sky looks promising! I loved your racing around video....you know how to have fun huh! :)

the TN Bull Terrors said...

Those clouds are boo-timous, but is that a tree rat shaped one right in the middle?? Is it some kind of trick??

Nice for your Mom to be taking another doggie run this weekend. We will look forward to the pics of her rider!

Pretty clouds and sad news about the PF boy. I hope the girl gets OK.

So sorry to hear about the male fledgling--that's tough news. We'll keep our paws crossed that the females have better luck. Thanks for the update, Khyra.

Homer said...

Hi gorgeous Khyra,

How are you doing? Sorry we haven't been visiting your blog. There's a lot of catching up for us.

How's the weather? Hope you'll get lots of sunshine everyday.

Love,

Clive said...

Great cloud photos - the sun shone here for the last few days as well - which makes such a difference.

Hope those birdies continue to do okay. Not easy for them!

Have a great weekend
lots of woofs

BeadedTail said...

Glad your sky is blue again! I still don't understand how no one is phased by a beautiful Sibe racing around the house. All attention should be focused on you at all times! Sorry to hear about the white-banded bird.

Chef said...

Thanks for the update on the birds. It's so interesting, even if some of the news isn't good. That's nature - the strong survive. We've noticed some unusually pretty clouds here too, also following some dreary, wet days. Happy travels to your mom.

Ricky the Sheltie said...

So sorry to hear about the fate of your little male falcon - poor little guys! Nature can be so cruel.

Our three females have all fledged - they left the ledge on purpose (unlike the male who was pushed off) and have been spotted around downtown on other buildings. Hopefully they will continue to do well.

Pedro said...

Khyra,

So sad that the boy PF did not make it. Very heartbreaking. I hope the girls do well and fly away from the city and become country girls! Those were some pretty clouds but what is that blue stuff? We haven't seen that at all by my dawg house in what seems forever! Mom said they had tons of it in Texas, Nevada and Arizona but they must be using it all up before it can get to us in the East!

Pedro

LUCKY LUKE said...

I did not likhe that story so much... but I know Nature does not always give us a happy ending. I like it better when it does, though... and I am glad the girls seem to be doin well.

I also like all the pitchers you share. My favorites, of course, are the you!

wif love from the Luke

Hi, Khyra -

We have fallen a little behind catching up on blogs. We are so sad to hear that one of the birds did not make it. Mother Nature has been in a lousy mood lately.

We can't wait to see the transport pictures.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
