I was driving around our property just checking things out and noticed a flock of maybe 100+ Redwing Blackbirds eating in a cut field. . Always good to see them migrate in.
One of my favorite things is just sitting on our front porch early in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the birds, deer and turkey. Very relaxing and makes this old man feel blessed to have always lived this farm life. It's already time for incubating our bobwhite quail eggs. We will sit a few thousand in about 10 days. That is about a month earlier than last year, but there is such a demand from us we need the extra birds. Better get the brooder barns cleaned up and disinfected soon.
