After The Storm
I am guessing he wishes he had gone south for the winter.
Inside The Old Barn.
I remember when this barn was filled with hay and not holes.
Inside The Barn Next- Door.
Back in the day this old barn was home to a flock of champion sheep, these are all that are left now.
One of three old ewes, all that is left of what used to be a prize-wining herd.
The Barn Next-Door.
As a child this was my next-door neighbors barn, I visited yesterday and the size still impresses me.
Minnesota's wild turkey population is expanding north and west. It has grown from just a few birds in the early 1970s to more than 30,000 today
Wild turkeys form flocks of six to 40 birds that roost in trees each evening. In 1782, the turkey lost by a single vote to the bald eagle to become the national bird.
Nuthatches are a thickset, stub-tailed, nervous little bird that scurry down tree trunks headfirst, hops, jerks, takes short jumps and moves along underside of branches in the same way with their back to the ground. They fly up and down like woodpeckers. When climbing down tree trunks, nuthatches depend entirely upon their claws. They stretch one foot forward under the breast and the other back under the tail, and hitch nimbly down the trees, digging in with their strong hind toes. The reason why these birds climb downward is that they may find food in bark crevices overlooked by birds that climb upward like tree creepers and small woodpeckers

White breasted Nuthatch
They get their common name from their habit of jamming large nuts and acorns into tree bark, then whacking them with their sharp bill to hatch out the seed from the inside.
