Geese travelling South (Winter Is Coming)

They are so high, you can barely hear (and see). Obviously, I could see better with my human eyes but you CAN make them out.


‘Ace, that’s not a toy’

Trying to find Ace’s chipmunk toy, I asked him, ‘Where’s Toy?’

He ran over and stood next to a lump.

I’m not 100% but I think that’s an European Starling in Winter plumage but it could be a Common Grackle. Some birds I know well and others, not so.

Still don’t know where the chipmunk is.

Anybody have a clue on this carcass?

‘It’s The Beetles!’ 

Worst nature doc ever but here’s me a couple of minutes ago.

You could say that I’ve played with the Beetles…

And I should say, I really expected it to squirt an horrible-smelling goo on me or at least pinch. It did neither, so I’m sticking with scarab or stag but I could swear stag beetles had way bigger ‘racks’ when I was a kid.

I think it’s your general shit-bug.
