** new day **
Saturday 20 January Chit Chat
Hi Howwa...a new day has begun See you there..
Hi Everyone, 5:01 PM in The Buckeye State
Hi Swift. Thanks for the hyena picture. I am going to get ready now. We are heading out for the evening. Happy camming and see you later.
Hi Ingwe and Sabine
I had to run to my PC and push the button
Listen to the radio, read paper and are cooking with that the cam on and quick looks now and then
Sounds not that good so volume low.
I just sat down and read your sightings post. Missed it by that much. Hubby and his bandmate are practising this afternoon. Can't hear a thing on the cam. :shock: Longing for new laptop and earphones.
Thanks for the story Havocskitty!! Wow :shock:
Sabine - enjoy the game tonight I have one eye on the cam and saw the hyena but couldn't get a pic - good that Swift did :!:
Hi everyone. Stopping by for a quick visit. Trying to finish editting daughter's project. Just missed the hyena. Thanks for the pic.
Great message from Karin today. Thank you so much!
Just popping in to drop a line and say hey!
Was watching ESPNews...a 24 hour Sports News channel, and they were talking about a football (soccer) match that took place in Johannesburg, SA, on Thursday. Seems the wind was soo bad, that it was blowing the advertisment boards onto the field! The footage shown made it seem like those huge advertisement boards (they were long enough to probably cover 6 people standing side by side) were meer pieces of paper blowing in the wind!! A few players and some fans were hurt, but none seriously, thank the heavens!! THEN they had to completely abandon the game when a freak storm moved in! I put the link to the actual story here. I just remember us all talking about the wind and the rain lately at the watering hole, and I know Johannesburg is not all that far away!
Pelicans are rather common from late January until late March but for me ...is something ...different...It is the first bird that come back in the middle of winter to check the nests and start again a new reproductive cycle....It is a message from the spring
The funny ...is that they put a platform into the lake ...for nesting and two pelicans were sitting there....Nooo nooo I dont believe that they interested to nest...just they had a rest there...They have put platforms in other lakes around too ...but Dalmatian pelicans return every year in Mikri Prespa where they breed in a mixed colony with White pelicans...But we are lucky as they use all the little lakes around to feed before sit at the nests
This helps me to ID it...I went there after a good study ...ha ha ha ......The light was excelent and helped me..... I saw very well the colours...Too brown upperparts to be a peregrine....to rufous head to be a saker and the uperparts was pale too....He he I don't believe I could ID it ...if I didnt study so hard before
