while waiting at drive up at MickyDees
I've likely seen Sharp Shinned Hawk before, but this the first time I have a pic to study and id, so, so, a new bird, for me....I was at the drive through Yesterday at MickyDees, waiting in the Rain, Hawk was overhead on Post...and Hermann's Gull at Balboa Pier Yesterday is a new bird, for me, too, insomuch I don't id Seagulls, but have noted now Gulls I see are mostly Western Gulls, and will try to make out going forward what other Gulls are in the mix!...no sooner than I get a few extra dollars, like from refereeing basketball Yesterday Morning, than the Old House reaches in my pocket...I was going out the front door, seeing the work on my neighbor's Jacaranda, and a Tree Trimmer trotted over and asked, while they were at it, could they do mine too...wth...'it's xmas time' I said on hearing the price...they did a good job, leaving the Tree to look natural...Two Top Jacaranda!...good thing for trim as very windy and cold last night...in editing for the blog, I noticed in pic of my neighbor's Tree, way up in the top left, that the Trimmers trimmed the Tall Palms across the street...good thing, the one looked top heavy...Parrots will be upset though...Palms a favorite perch...sunny clear blue, last night stormy, this Morning dusting of Snow on Saddleback all the way down...Everything in a Nutshell: basketball games can be dramas, and a couple days back coach was woofing at me for a non call, and while listening, gathering my thoughts, the player, a JV girl, said to woofing coach, 'I didn't foul!'....a dilemma, players cant complain to me at all, unless they are team captain, that's a T, and coach was on verge of getting a T...what to do what to do...I raised my arms outstretched in a grand gesture, and barked out, 'Everyone calm down...no more of this back and forth!!!', and on we all went...
Happy New Year!
