Every morning starts about the same. I get up and wake my Human Momma to take me out. It’s usually dark, but close enough to dawn that the Great Blues are waking up and making their raspy calls. After I make a quick run to check out the bushes and make sure they are properly marked, I go back inside and nap until time for breakfast. At 6 am I get breakfast.
By this time, Momma is dressed and starting the Humans breakfast of fruit, tea and a slice of the homemade bread which Momma makes every week. As soon as she finishes I ask for a walk.
Off we go…no not into the “wild blue yonder”!
The drought in the southeast has lowered the water levels so that we have a beach! I love the beach! In the picture below I’m actually in the wetlands that aren’t wet this year.
By now the birds are singing and the sea gulls screeching. They are searching for bait fish. The Herons and Egrets are wading in the shallows fishing.
Large flocks of Canadian Geese fly off to the farm fields to feed. They always “honk” as they fly so you can’t miss them.
On a really chilly day I get the “zoomies” and race up and down the beach. The Killdeer frequent the beach and nest in the yard and the gardens. They keep flying off when I try to approach. Next month the great migration will begin.
