Farm report Moving right along with all work getting a lot done. Cows are good a few more to
calf. Pastures are growing. The hay field is beautiful hope there is some grass in there looks like a green carpet.
Take care and be kind to everyone.

This is a new bird for me to see below my feeder. He was digging with that bill of his, the way a woodpecker digs at a tree getting bugs. Sorry for the way the pictures look just wanted to share I was afraid if I went out he would have been gone. He has the stripped breast and the yellow eye and is a Brown Thrasher
Love the weather not so much the water but we will get in the field in due time.
There is a time for everything we just need to learn patients.
Take care and be kind to others.

Farm report I think half of our cows have calved. The guys are busy putting on Anhydrous, spreading fertilizer playing catch up because they still have to check the cows. Hope the weather holds out a few showers are OK no flooding.
Have a great week and take care

Farm report We have number 11 tag on my kitchen table you know every thing is done on the kitchen table even marking cattle tags. We have a Heifer in the barn that Mike swears is going to have twins. Jim says she is a day late because he knew when she was breed. OK the story is to be continued maybe the rain will start her labor. I always said when the barometric pressure drops we have calves, that is when it rains and snows so the story goes

I am going to an I69 meeting this evening at the high school. Just to see what is being said don't know if they have any maps of the alternate routes but I am a bit curious since we are near the 67 and 39 junction. I always thought I would be too old to drive on the new highway but they are going pretty fast with the construction. I may just have to take Old 37 to Bloomington it is a pretty drive by the forestry and the small lake, not too many people travel that way, leave the highway for all the truckers that are suppose to use it from Mexico to Canada
Farm report: believe we have had some heifers calving about 9 of them we have a few more to go then the cows start. We have been praying for them to hold off until the weather breaks so far so good.
The guys are clearing out fence rows and tree lines. Mike saw the Eagle in the river bottoms but last years nest is gone and there is a huge one in an old Oak tree not to far from where the old nest was. So what happened to the old nest, did they move it, did a storm with high winds destroy it just curious??
Does anyone follow the same eagles to know what they do?? Driving down 67 south of the light saw 2 of them fighting locked together in free fall thought they would hit my car I had slowed down, they broke apart then flew away.
