Thursday Thinking and Thanking

How to open the window Oh HI MOM Just chekhking on woo
I'll go bakhk and just wait fur a walk - woo know where to find me
The sky when it was time fur our furst walk on Tuesday
I spent some time thinking about playing - I passed as I wasn't feeling it
I sat fur a bit
Then decided to watch Mom from here
Channeling my inner pointer!
Fred and The Doggy Nanny - Wednesday was Fred's 75th Gotcha Day - Mom khouldn't make his pawty SO they went to dinner Tuesday night
The sky khoming bakhk
Kind of khool - Mom said the western sky as they were returning from Harrisburg was really khool but she didn't have any khlear shots
Wednesday morning as Mom headed to work
I had an Eastern Bluebird of Happiness visit my tree
Mom tried fur a khloser shot but some of the tree's buds hid some of the bird
And speaking of birds, here is a shot from Wednesday evening - Mom wanted to share the pawesome news she saw on the PF site when she got home from work - one of our PFs has moved to oHIo ! It looks like she wants to bekhome a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

3/30/2011 :: Harrisburg Offspring Discovered at Nest! The green-banded female from the 2009 nesting season has claimed her own nesting territory. This female was the largest of four females and one male banded on May 27th 2009. Her band codes were confirmed by falcon watchers on March 6th. She displaced an established female at a bridge scrape near Rocky River Metro Parks in Brookpark, Ohio, a few miles south of Cleveland. The site is close to Cleveland Hopkins Airport and the entranceway to NASA. No reports yet of eggs in the nest but there have been many sightings of breeding activity. The Harrisburg watch and rescue crews should be commended here because if not for their efforts in rescuing this female from the street several days after fledging, she may not have survived.

It is always so khool to read about where our Peregrines have winged off to!!!
