north florida - epiphany

By: marsHen , 12:33 PM GMT on January 06, 2012

06:40, 44F, dense fog. songbirds singing. rooster crowing. guard dog not at back door..
yesterday in a shallow cove there were several dead cow-nose rays (rhi. bonansis). probably the cold killed them. these large rays usually migrate in large schools to warmer waters in the fall .
time for chores..
10:30, 64F, clearing. sold all the rams plus the wether. the good news is that they have a job - clearing land.. so they're not heading straight for the butcher's. didn't ask about their job security, though. but, seems like this fellow rents rams out to live with cattle and eat the weeds in the pasture. works for me!
this past week I've been seeing small flocks of robins along the road to CK. they usually show up this time of the year, linger briefly, then are gone. I rarely see them in the yard.
beautiful, warm, low 70's, and sunny at CK today with nary a breeze and the bugs were laying low. high tide flooding in. went to kona joe's for lunch and had a really good crab quiche while sitting out on the back porch and watching the scaups float by and 2 ospreys fishing from the mangroves..
06:15, 58F with a big moon coming up over the oaks.

I'll second that, skyepony! our agency was pretty busy the last 2 years rescuing cold-shocked turtles and manatees. glad we've all been spared that so far.

Nice not having dead sea life abound here this winter or looking for shocked turtles on deep frozen mornings..
