Hello to my favorite bird threaders. I have been on vacation and got back today. Have to have a day or two to recuperate from too much fun and sun before going back to work. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I am.

It's HOT, but not as bad as out West. Wow. Plus we got some nice showers. Stopped the race at Kentucky Speedway while we were still enjoying clear blue skies with the most beautiful "natural" fluffy clouds. Glad I didn't have to water the roses or flowers. We are so Lucky in Kentucky. I am grateful! It was a great day.

I see the summer rush of super moon trolls rolled in. haha They just don't get it. Silly trolls.

Will check back in the next day or so and bring you some smiles. Meanwhile this one seems fitting to start with: Enjoy, they are adorable. I know lala, betty, and AW will smile.:)

The critters get creative when it's crazy molten hot outside

With a potentially record-breaking heat wave blistering its way across the American West through the weekend, people are warned to stay out of the sun and drink plenty of water. And even if you aren't living in that crazy dark red swatch on the map, other parts of the U.S. may still get pretty hot. So what about the critters? As you'll see in these photos, they can get pretty creative to stay cool, and in some cases, rely on a little help from their human friends.(And if you have any doubt how hot it can get in some locales, we added a few pics of non-living things to illustrate the point). Stay cool!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Tiddly Winks, Mumbly Peg, Annie Over, Red Rover or Hide and seek? Maybe Drop the Hanky? Hop-Scotch?

Hide and Seek or Drop the Hanky. Your choice!

Good Morning!!
Roaming, hope you get some rest today. I have a hard time getting to sleep because of caffeine filled soft drinks. My bad. But most nights I'm okay. You seem to suffer most nights though.
Bird question: chicken- hens . Sometimes as I watch them eat, all at once a watery liquid falls from their beak. What's the problem?

@ Anne, if you have a neighbor to help assist you, I'd at least check the hen. It is most likely something it ate. Hope this article helps;)

Well, the guy that I am dating had a wreck last night and totaled his car. I wasn't there. But, it scared me. He is an old friend of mine, and I suddenly realized that I would be distraught if anything happened to him.
Some things put your life into perspective quickly.

I know what you mean. Partner was going through St. Louis to Oklahoma when that tornado hit I40. I know, not to be subtle about it worry about Lovey just as I do my teenager when he's gone with his father. I count my blessings every day;) Live, love and be merry and hold him tight when you got him that's the key to life.
I continue you to wish you well. Hopefully, he wasn't banged up though. Probably scared as would be the case in an accident. Stay strong;)

It has been over 30 years since my family raised cows,chickens,ducks,turkeys, and goats. Lol. I do hope it assists you in your research. By all meand finish your dinner;)
Good evening All. It has been gorgeous;) Am preparing for Sugarbun to get home.

No we don't. Actually I don't care at all especially since it appears that the 4 or 5 posts you might have been referencing are no longer on my screen LOL Have a good night.

Well. It's time for some shut eye around my house.
Earlier I was watching how such a tiny bird could chase away one of those huge hawks. I wonder what their story is....
Have a great night... Roaming, may you find sweet rest tonight.

Good morning.. It is coffee and dog-tree time at my house. Small birds can recognize large predatory birds and out maneuver them much like the P51-Mustang was able to do during WW2 while flying escorts for the larger B-17 and B-25 bombers. They can fly behind and above the larger birds and attack with relative impunity and drive the larger bird away. This is more prevalent during spring and early summer nesting seasons. I have not seen any chasing hawks lately, but I see them chasing buzzards nearly every day.
Incidentally, the P51-Mustang is my all-time favorite plane and was also used by the first squadron on African-American airmen known as the "Tuskeegee Airmen". These heroes first experienced much racial bias but later bomber crews began to request their assistance due to their expertise in protecting the bomber crews. This is depicted quite well in he movie "Red Tails".

Wow, roaming, if there was ever a candidate for a night job, you're one! Have you ever gone to a sleep clinic? It's rough not getting rest I'm sure.

AW: to be honest there's some red tail hawks around and about so I just figured it was them the little birds were dive bombing. With your love of planes-- would you happen to do any flying? Years ago my dad leveled off a spot so my uncle could land his small plane. The "landing strip" is long gone but its a great memory. My cousin is the only one that continued the flying and he's had several small planes with well over 5000 hours. Expensive hobby.
