There is a raven sitting in a tree along the border of the home field and the south field. He has been cawing, “Come Food” for five hours. He spotted something he would like to eat and he wants someone, another raven preferably, to act as a sentinel while he goes down to eat and then they’ll switch while the other raven eats and the first raven guards.
A few weeks ago I showed a picture of the frog eggs
. They hatched over a three day period. A lot of little black wigglers! Interestingly, some of them are much larger than others – all from the same egg mass.
Be Cool Tiny Black Bee
This tiny bee landed on the water jug I was using to fill the chick’s waterer. I think it was seeking the droplets of water condensing on the outside of the container. I once counted 17 types of bees.
