Fledgling In The Vegetable Garden Yesterday I noticed an adult Grackle hanging around the bird feeder in our yard.  Grackles generally do not feed at my feeder, so this got my attention. This adult black iridescent bird with yellow eyes was staying around and calling here and there.  Then I noticed a black bird on the ground amongst the growing vegetables in my garden.  So this is why the Grackle was around...its baby had taken flight not too long ago and was now a fledgling: not quite able to fly and vulnerable to harm on the ground.   This adult Grackle was calling out, talking to its baby, guiding it with its calls, telling it to stay put or to move for cover under vegetation in the garden.  I also noticed mom/dad flew away in search for food.  Returning a short while later and again...

Happy Earth Day 2015Today is Earth Day and it is windy and raining off and on as I write here in SE PA. For some people Earth Day has become a day to celebrate the Earth and to do group work projects cleaning up outdoors, planting trees, removing non native invasive plants....you name it people just want to be part of the celebration of our one and only home, Earth.  To others it is just another day.To those of you who do service to honor this day and Earth, I thank you! And to those of you who do not care one way or the other I hope you at least give a thought to the planet we live on.  It is the only one we have and how we treat it and care for it now is important for future generations.Happy Earth Day 2015!

The Nobscussett Tribe The First To Feed The Mayflower Pilgrims A few years ago we vacationed in Cape Cod in December and as with all of our vacations we traveled around the area and took in the sights in order to appreciate the area more.  On one of these outings we came upon a sign for the "Burial Grounds Of The Nosbscussett Tribe Of Indians" in the town of Dennis.  We stopped and I ventured on the overgrown path off the road to the burial ground.  This sacred ground was overlooking a body of water and appeared to be maintained and had recent visits from people leaving offerings of sea shells and garlands for the Christmas season. The only sign at the burial ground simply stated, "Burial Ground of the Nosbscussett Tribe of Indians of which tribe Mashantanpaine Was Chief".  It was a pea...
