In Glacier National Park around 2009, the local utility erected a platform for osprey to nest on, in hopes of keeping them out of a nearby transformer. Glacier staff set up a webcam in order to watch the osprey in action, and were rewarded with chicks hatching, growing, and eventually taking flight!

However, 2011 and 2012 were sad years for the osprey cam, as the chicks were lost during a storm in 2011, and one of the mates died as a result of flying into nearby power lines in 2012. 2013 has arrived, and a new osprey couple has arrived at the nest, and we hope they can produce a successful brood!

Good evening! I'm sorry, but work got busy at the end of the shift, and I didn't have time for my customary sign-off! Hopefully, work will behave, and I'll have time for the new blog, as well as visiting everyone! I only have one good cam to find, and I'll be ready to put it together!

Looks like rain is headed my way; at least the yard just got mowed, lol!

ycd: Giraffe? :' )

Briar, when I have time, and my brain isn't addled with fatigue, I'll get some photos! :' ) I wonder if Jane is a senior citizen ?

GG, I first thought you were going out to look at pickup trucks! :' )

Good Morning. Very quiet on the cams. Going to drive out to a Raptor (not to be confused with rapture) photo shoot out in Lucas, Tx.
Perhaps I can bring them a wascally wabit if I'm real quick.

Quoting Ylee:
Briar, first you need a cage about 100 times larger than mine, with bottoms welded on. Then, pretend you're TroyLeslie, and put some corn and a salt block in it. Lastly, after they are captured, you can load them up on a flatbed truck with a forklift, and pay the guy to take them wherever! ;' )

Very funny!

I guess it will be cheaper and easier to just plant extra for Jane Doe. I have discovered that she doesn't see too well. If I string a wire about nose height (hers, not mine!) across her habitual path to the garden, she bumps into it a few times, then changes her habit and wanders elsewhere. She has pulled a wire down now and then, but mostly it just confuses her. Deer aren't too smart.

So, now that I've seen and rated your photo of that handsome laid back raccoon, how 'bout a picture of your garden now and then???

Good evening! We had a sunny but cool day today, temp didn't make it to 70! supposed to get in the mid 40s tonight! A nice night to work, as the honeysuckle is starting to kick in! Ahhhhhh...... :' )

Awaiting the "Moon over Positano", hopefully it'll be really nice! Already see the moon over Milos!

I'll continue the cam search tonight; hopefully, I'll get the new blog up tomorrow!

Thanks for the tip, trauma! I would've never gave the Positano cam a second glance if you hadn't said something!

Evenin', Todd! Hope your training is over!

Hi, Sandi! Hope you had a nice trip at the Aged Rellies!

GG, I don't know if peanut butter cheese crackers will attract rabbits or not! That wascally wabbit! :' )

Camera check. Squirrels and a cardinal at Troy Leslie.
The local wild bunny that had been co-existing in my flower garden ate a bunch of my drip tubing.
Looks like I am going to have to relocate that guy now. It is all the raccoons fault ;)

Hi, Oz! It's getting ready for a cooldown here as well, temps are going down to more April like readings! At least we're not getting frost, as jus is forecast to get!

No major cam finds this afternoon; I'll have to get back at it tomorrow night, when I return! Everybody take care!

Hi Ylee, person in the garden and lovely band of sunshine on Mount Wellington in Hobart. Bit frosty here this morning old fingers are a bit stiff but should warm up, next week we are due to get some unseasonal warm weather! Plants are soooo confused we have apples and pears in blossom and mulberries on our tree. Have a great weekend.

Good Morning, quick coffee and breakfast before playing in the yard. Glad you missed the big stuff too.
Great job on your raccoon catch and release. They are so cute yet so destructive.

Good morning! Nice day so far; we're supposed to have a chance of rain today, but the way it looks at the moment, I don't see it. Not a cloud! Supposed to drop into the 40s the next two nights! Kinda chilly for late May!

I'll be in and out of WU today, as I look for more cams for the next blog!

Looks like the rain and whatnot is staying away, for the time being!

Work's been busy the last hour or so, and I guess the blogs have, too! :' )

Briar, first you need a cage about 100 times larger than mine, with bottoms welded on. Then, pretend you're TroyLeslie, and put some corn and a salt block in it. Lastly, after they are captured, you can load them up on a flatbed truck with a forklift, and pay the guy to take them wherever! ;' )

Good luck with your garden, Reno! Time to get out the tiki torches! Or a big bonfire!

Oz, tornados are too much adventure for me, too! I guess I don't have storm chaser's blood, lol!

ycd, I've seen people on the Korat cam, but I'm not sure if they are tending, or just visiting! I think I'd rather just visit!

bug, I was lucky, IMO. My luck usually finds a great snarling beastie that you see on bad cable shows, lol!

Time to go home! Be back tomorrow!

That's a nice little coon! Hope he/she will be happy in his/her new abode. Away from your house!

You're lucky it was fairly docile. They can be really mean and aggressive when trapped or cornered.

So your gardens are sprouting-I planted my tomatoes Sumday - I'm wondering if snow clouds use a altimeter - snow level at 5000 ft and I'm at 4545
A cold front is pushing through Northeast California and Western Nevada today. It’s causing temperatures to drop well below average through Thursday. Daytime highs and overnight lows are in the low-60s and upper-30s today and tomorrow. There are Hard Freeze Warnings in effect tonight for parts of north central and north eastern Nevada. There’s a slight chance of showers north of Gerlach and Portola, Thursday. Snow levels may drop between 5,000 and 6,500 ft., Thursday night

Ylee, the might 'coon hunter. Attaboy! That's more garden produce for you and not some pesky critter. Also, that's excellent advice you give in #132. There is a bob-tailed raccoon around here. Evidently, a coyote or neighbor's dog tried to have coon for dinner a couple of years ago. I haven't bothered trying to catch it, because it does far less damage to my yarden than Jane Doe and her offspring. Wish I could trap those pesky munchers and transport them elsewhere.

GG, wab, jus, and trauma: It was a non event here; just a little rain, wind, and an occasional rumble. Thank you for thinking of me! :' )


Bug, he's(it might be a she, but I wasn't about to check, lol) about five miles away, not near other homes, with fields nearby, and plenty of thicket and woods, plus there is also a creek. He should be happy there!

Hi, Oz! I guess I could've sent him to you FedEx, is you wanted him bad enough! :' ) Our garden is just starting to sprout, along with the weeds! Oh, well....

Cams are looking pretty cloudy at the moment also, Sandi! Getting cloudy here, too! Rain's not done here yet!

Janet if you know someone who has a trap and knows how to handle coons, that would be a plus, but your hubby could probably do it. You can buy a large trap at a farm store or hardware store for about $30, and bait it with something it likes(I used peanut butter cheese crackers, but I also heard they like marshmellows). If you catch it, make sure you use heavy leather gloves, and take care in keeping the cage away from your body! The coon I caught was docile, but the one that was caught at my aunt's a couple of years ago, was really ticked off, and would like nothing better than to get at his captor! Always take extra care when handling wild animals! If in doubt, call the local animal control people!

Add: release it somewhere away from people, where there is plenty of cover and food available. That way, it won't starve, or go pester someone else! :' )

Good morning! Bright and sunny at the moment, with a chance of rain and thunderstorms later! All the foul weather rained itself out by the time it got to my home; we might have got a third of an inch of rain, which is plenty for us at the moment!

Cams look OK, will start on the new blog later in the week!

I wanted to share this pic of my recent triumph in coon catching! He was a well-behaved fellow that quickly made it off into the woods after I opened it up!I dropped him off in some prime coon habitat(not near someone else's house, lol) about five miles from home.



As you can see, he had his feet up against the trap door! I kinda felt bad for the guy for hauling him off like that, but he had to go, and he's in a good place now!

Hi Ylee, glad you caught your raccoon, still want to see one in the wild though maybe this year! Hope the bad weather does not cause you any problems, the footage we have seen looks horrendous! Just come in from my patrol around the garden, broad beans are doing well, cauliflowers look good and turnips and parsnips are just coming through! Weeds appearing everywhere now we have had some rain and the temperatures are due to drop by this weekend!

you caught a raccoon! I wish we could catch ours. It not only is emptying the feeders but is now knocking down the hummers feeders. I think I am going to stop putting those out anyway. We have only 1 or 2 visit those. It seems the woodpecker and house finches are the most frequent visitors along with the coon.
I know you are happy to have finally be able to get your garden in.
Take care~

Good evening! I came in to work today, and was so busy, I didn't get a chance even for a Hi/Bye! However, the opportunity for staying over four hours came about, and I took it! I've already finished the task they asked me to do, so for the next two hours, I can goof off here! :' )

The coon is caught! Picture and full story Wednesday!

The cams I can see with this computer all seem to be doing OK; Lake McDonald looks particularly inviting!

Hi, bug! In this case, it was peanut butter cheese crackers! He ate them all while he was waiting, lol! Sweet corn is definitely not on the menu, since it would've been still on the stalk!

So your century plant is an agave? Are you going to make tequila with it? :' )

Hi/bye, Tony! :' )

Briar, I haven't got to that point yet; maybe by this weekend! The lettuce and radishes that I planted a week or so ago have started to come up, which is exciting!

If you've seen pictures of Pros' hometown of Librizzi, the buildings there are set up in much the same way!

Hi, cal! I'd have a couple of palm trees at my front walkway, if they could survive!

I'm sorry you're having critter difficulties; As stated above, I caught the coon, but the deer like the vittles in the garden, too! Don't have a trap big enough for them, lol!

Hi, GG! Thank you! I'll have to stop by and check them out!

Hi, Sandi! Looks like a dragonfly, to me! I hope it's not a skeeter; something that big would hurt!

ycd, I can't see it from this computer; I'll try it again Wednesday!

Yeah, Alley, that's a Dragonfly Surveillance Drone by the IRS, sent to check on us, and make sure we pay our taxes! ;' )

Hi, SP! You saw a tractor on the Savannah? Never thought I'd see one there! What's next, Milos? :' )

The church was what drew me to the cam in the first place! I'll bet it's beautiful inside! Don't know the name of it, though!

Hi, Ylee! I really like the Cabo cam - I could hang out there!
Also, the one in Naples. It looks so precarious but I know those buildings have probably been there for a very long time. Does anyone know the name of the lovely church?
I think sandi caught a grasshopper (or locust) on the savannah! Last week sometime I saw two guys and a tractor there. They didn't seem to be doing anything but standing around looking at the tractor ... some things are universal, LOL

Hope whatever you said was going to keep you from the computer is not too arduous!

EDIT - as I scrolled back out through the cams I saw this on the camp Kanzi cam...

What is it? A helicoper? Don't think so? A three winged bird? Or the biggest mosquito in the world!! lol

Ha! I finally got around here to see the Savana Cam in daylight, and there's a herd of gazelles up close. Sweet!

And I finally get to see Naples. Amazing how they stack the buildings practically on top of one another. It gives a whole new meaning to high-density housing. Then again, everybody's got an ocean view.

What did you plant in your garden, Ylee? No rice this year, after all, eh?

Starting 4-5 days after I plant seeds, I wander by at least once a day to see if there are any sprouts. I get excited when I see that first speck of green. More often than not, a few days later, when the real veggie actually sprouts, I then pull out that first eager weed that happened to come up perfectly in line with the row.

Do you wander by the garden every day to discover what has sprouted?

Has anyone ever seen a human bean walk through that garden with all the agaves in bloom? I've been checking to see if I could put their height into perspective. They appear to be a little different variety from the one I have, though, so they may not get as tall.

I see sheep at the Mama Mia cam, too! Natural lawn mowers.
