We were building our log archway this evening, and I thought there were a few geese coming in off the lake … but they were flying strangely (well, strangely for geese anyway). Gliding through the air, I saw five buzzards! They are really early this year (although they were also flying south … so maybe they thought better of hanging out this far north in January?).
Anya didn’t close the chicken tractor well today. When I looked outside to check on the chickens, I saw Sunshine right by the house. We headed out, rounded up the three escapees, and refilled their water. On the way back into the house, there were three buzzards flying over the house.
