There has been a frequent flier at the lake lately. That’s what I call the hawk that is out on the post all the time lately. I really mean all the time, including in the torrential rain. I have to wonder if the animals find the weather as much of an annoyance as we do. He was out there on the post as if there was nothing unusual about the weather at all.I came back from the sunrise to find that the cranes were still out back on the lake, I would have expected them to be gone by then. And as I went out and set out to take pictures I saw that the cranes were out there, but on a smaller post very near the cranes was the hawk. It was a surprise, and I wondered if I should be alarmed. The cranes weren’t worried though. They just continued on their way, and it was the hawk who blinked, I mean took off. The cranes seem to be king of the hill out there.And the Common Gallinule chicks I’ve been attempting to photograph were finally out in the open, eating bread if truth be told. I wasn’t feeding them though. I will look up what is healthy to feed the birds if a person feels the need to feed them.And the answer was frozen peas, but thawed, and corn, fresh, frozen, or canned. Who knew?
