Your Living Legacy


pelicans, cranes and antelope

On the way to town yesterday, members of the fall migration caught my attention and I pulled over to look with my monocular.  At least 20 pelicans were on the water and shore of the lake where I have seen them before.  This time, I also saw 5 blue herons.  With the aid of the spyglass, I could also see that there were at least 20 more pelicans clustered at the curve of the beach where it went out of sight.   When I looked at the lake using the satelite option on Google Maps, I noticed it is shaped slightly like a bear paw, so it is fun to speculate on how many more pelicans and cranes could be there.

This morning, 8 antelope grazed their way across our property, finally disappearing down the slope towards our little wetland.  I hope they notice that all of our grass belongs to them, and hang around for a while.
