It was Friday morning, getting ready for the day. Oh, I forgot to fill the bird feeder with black sunflowers seeds. I better do that. There I was pouring seeds into my bird feeder when I spotted a Mississippi kite perched in the dead honey locust tree that is located at the corner of my house. The kite is about 30 feet from the ground watching me, I slowly went into the house to retrieve my camera and back out the door. Hoping that the kite was still there. It was a wonderful surprise to have the kite in my backyard to pose for several photos. Then in an instant, the kite caught the wind and was gone. I spotted two more soaring in the sky above the house for a total of three Mississippi kites for the morning.
Drove down to Glenrose at lunch on Sunday for our favorite Bar-B-Q, Hammond’s. Lunch was wonderful, but we were a little sad, no peanut butter pie today. Then off to Glenrose State Park to see what we could see. Driving through the park we didn’t see much wildlife action, I wondered if we were going…

Happy Mother’s Day! Thanks for keeping an eye on the little ones. Blessing for all your hard work.
