Dart to the Rescue

Unbelievably, while feeding the near death bluebirds this evening, one escaped. Okay, that one was in the best shape. After feeding the other two, I went to look for it. I couldn’t find it. Regis helped. We couldn’t find it. I engaged Dart. He… Continue Reading “Dart to the Rescue”

Baby Bluebirds Near Death

We have been discussing selling the motorhome and decided to pull the trigger recently. Following is a picture of Dart in his usual spot while I emptied the motorhome and cleaned it one last time. This is where he spends his time while we… Continue Reading “Baby Bluebirds Near Death”

Regis vs Pippen

I think the red-bellied woodpecker we are rescuing is driving Regis crazy. The bird plucked all its body feathers and the temperature dipped, so I brought the bird inside. Its feathers are starting to come back, but they are not long enough to keep… Continue Reading “Regis vs Pippen”

Wren in the Garage

I suppose the wrens are looking for nesting opportunities. I found one in the garage. The other day, one was in the bedroom. Yegads! We have not seen Squeak for two days. I have heard killdeers in the marsh for a couple days. I… Continue Reading “Wren in the Garage”

Pip Died Last Night

Yesterday, we noticed that Pip (our smallest killdeer) looked a little scruffy. We weighed the little killdeer and it lost 5 grams in two days. I gave it the same medication I gave earlier to help the bird beef up. It was not enough… Continue Reading “Pip Died Last Night”

Dart/Wildlife Rescues

DART Dart is a Shetland sheepdog and performed in agility trials until we left Maryland when he was five. Florida does not offer many trials and I could only find one place to train. We stopped doing agility but Dart continued expertly catching his… Continue Reading “Dart/Wildlife Rescues”

Cedar Key

We recently returned from camping several days in Cedar Key, Florida. We stayed at our favorite location – Low Key Hideway. They have about 10 campsites and all located on the water. There is a small hotel and a Tiki Bar and it is… Continue Reading “Cedar Key”

Hawk Pursuit

Dart and I inadvertently seem to have interrupted a hawk pursuit. Dart likes to play with his flying disk. It’s technically not a frisbee, but we call it one. If you say “frisbee” to Dart, he goes nuts and starts running around in circles… Continue Reading “Hawk Pursuit”

Post trip

It’s been about a week now since we got home. We have spent a good part of that time putting large piles of “stuff” away in their proper place. I guess it’s a good time to start some trip summary blogs, looking back, maybe… Continue Reading “Post trip”
