Jordan Lake: This morning the jaunty little Killdeers decided to join me and you out here on the lake. They are very talkative little birds: they talk when they fly, they talk when they eat. I love the way they do their little bouncy walk as they go looking for food. Have a blessed day, stay well. Stay safe and warm.

Jordan Lake Natural Temperature Gauge
Here is a prime example of my father‘s favorite kind of temperature gauge. I photographed this red shouldered hawk yesterday morning when the wind chill factor was 35°F. Even if I had been sitting in my warm truck, I could have glanced over at this hawk and known that because he is almost as big around as he is tall … the air is cold. He has all of his feathers fluffed up as a nice warm blanket. Also note that he’s got his body lowered so that his feather blanket is mostly covering his feet … just like our warm winter slippers would do.

Jordan Lake: Quite a bright and breezy autumn natural minute! It is neat to watch the beautiful leaves dancing in the wind and listen to the sound of the lake and a noisy crow. Take care, be safe. Stay well!
