The first bird hatched

but it looked to me as if it was not alive but I am still hoping since Momma is back on the nest. She was not there when we came back from our afternoon happy time with our friends.
It was not quite so hot today which is a real relief. All afternoon we sat by the creek that flows through their property. Everybody went in the water except I. I need unbearably hot weather before I hit the water. When I was younger I almost lived at the swimming pool and in Indonesia I was always in the water. Somehow I prefer to sit by the water now rather than be in it, so I took some pictures instead




It was a great afternoon and now it's time to go to bed. I sure hope I will be able to see Momma raise he 3 chicks.
Good night everybody ☺


  1. Looks like a very nice afternoon. Love summer for those kind of days.

  2. That is a beautiful spot that Tom and Joyce have, it reminds me of my childhood and the creek further down the road, it was quite deep and you could jump in off a giant rock. Lots of crawfish though, but I caught a lot of them back in the fifties!! I used to use my Moms' bacon on a string, it worked great! She didn't know I took it to fish.,.,.,.,.,.,,

  3. Hi Vera, that shorter man with the bald head in the picture sure has a great body, is he going snorkelling in a foot of water? Hope the wee birdies make it..

  4. You might be able to hear the frantic chirps of the hungry chicks in a few days. Then Mama will be busy!

  5. I would be delighted to refresh myself in the creek. The water looks clean and so refreshing.

    Lovely photos!
