Sat.`s critters

Linking up with Eileen this Sat.for Sat`s. critters, you can go here 
to view all today`s cuties...

I was visiting my friend at her dairy farm & taking pictures of the fall landscapes when her phone rang. She went in the house to answer it, & my attention went to the cows across the road. They were GALLOPING. Skipping, doing happy dances , I had never seen cows do that, so I snapped some pictures. She came running out to get her husband saying, the cows are out of the fence!! We went across the street to corral them back in. The late afternoon light was just amazing over there. Lamar finally had to drive his truck over the pasture & they followed him thinking they were going to be fed. They escaped again around around 2 am I was told...

Newest family member, a golden retriever named Susie

I need to stay off facebook...really. I answered the call for a home for this 8 year golden, never dreaming that all of the golden retriever lovers out there in facebook land did not have a place for this sweetie, but lo & behold she needed a home & after 2 weeks on facebook she came to live with us.

Her mommy went to live in an assisted living home & couldn`t take her. Donna still drives & has been here to see Susie & I am glad that they can be together here.

This is my first at having a golden. I`ve always loved them. But there are things I did not know that they could do.

Example....did you know that the golden retriever can hide stuff in their jowls? Like dead animals?!  The first time she brought in a dead animal, I did not know it. She came inside, went to her gigantic dog bed, & when little toy poodle, Chloe, went over to have a sniff at her bed, she growled. I scolded her saying it is not nice to do that & I won`t put up with it. She hung her head , got out of her bed & dropped some dead creature at my feet. I screamed, everyone scattered, & I was able to take her gift out to the trash. Since then there have been 4 more of these "gifts." I am working on having her "smile" at me before I allow her to come inside the house now.Because she can sure hide things in the sides of her mouth...

More evenning grosbeak pictures

There seems to be just a single grosbeak. The baby is still here & did go up to my neighbor`s feeder for which I was thankful for. My elderly neighbor
 had not seen one for years.
Under the wings is bright red, I think he will eventually become a rose-breasted evening grosbeak.

Evenning Grosbeak

My neighbor & I have been taking our 90 year old neighbor supper in the evening during the week, & on my walk home tonight I spotted an evening grosbeak at my feeder. They migrate through here in May then again in Sept. , but I haven`t seen them for awhile. I just saw 1.
I started taking my feeder apart to clean , it is filthy.

eastern wood pee-wee?
I always leave the jewelweed for the hummingbirds

Wild Bird Wed.

Linking up with Stewart for wild bird Wed. , you can also link here to share yours & view other peoples photos.
I am sharing some hummingbird pictures , I am down to 1 or 2 birds now. I have no clue why they don`t all leave together , I will miss these little birds & their comical displays in the air. I was very nearly dive bombed  by them several times this year....mental note to myself, watch wearing red in the summertime!
I also have a new bird, I am always pleased to see a new bird. At first I thought it was a great crested flycatcher , but correct me if I am wrong , it may be an eastern wood-peewee. The bird chirps into the night , & it is not a mockingbird. I haven`t seen those birds for awhile here in my yard/woods. 
Well, blogger won`t let me upload my photos, 3 times now & I have wasted an hour of my time. Is this worth it? I select the photos , click add , then when I am done I go to click off the X so I can continue on to publish....can`t click off...oh, well, headed off to Stewart`s site...
