Strip pits


We went down to see Rose yesterday and spent the night and of course we went out to her famous strip pits. We saw pheasants, deer, killdeer, geese, and ducks. One of the killdeer we saw had little ones and I got out and took some pictures of them since they couldn't run in the grass very well. Of course, mama was having a fit when we were close to her little ones. :) The sunset was also beautiful.

These turned out pretty good, considering the time of day we were there. Mine did not turn out at all. (you forgot to say we saw a beaver.)

I took a nap after you guys left, then went out there earlier in the evening. I seen an owl, one Northern Harrier, a couple pheasants, and I can't even think what else.

I've seen some killdeer but no eggs or babies yet.
I just left Rose a note saying I wish I could go to the strip pits with her - no fair Neal! :)

Sadly my daughter's apartment got robbed a few weeks ago and her laptop was stolen so I will be without a PC. I'll catch up with you in a few weeks. Behave yourself!

Is Rose now offering tours of her strip pits? I'd like to go there since she gets so many wonderful pictures. You did a good job with these -- I just hope the mother has recovered by now.
