An exciting adventure looking at the land and the people around me.

Lily got all her winter growth trimmed back, she catches a lot of snow on her paws and belly making her a tiny snowball at times.
A wave of geese flowed across the prairie, a progression to return to nesting grounds to the north. Hundreds of birds assembled in a following of various leaders forming different shaped V's. One long flight was followed by another group of ducks, another huge flock of Northern Shoveler. A few Snow geese intermixed with Canadians soon catch up with the flights ahead. Spring is just around the corner, and the migrations along the Missouri River are a sight to behold.Meadowlarks and Red- winged Blackbirds are some of the early arrivals along with the Robins The calls in the forest of Cardinals and Tufted Titmouse tell me they are ready to begin nesting . I have the weekend off and hope to stay very busy trying to see this symphony of pleasure to be seen out on the prairie.
