We have an empty lot next to our house. I've always liked it because that means I only have a neighbor on one side of me. It seems that a new family decided that they wanted to put their home on that empty lot. They showed up a couple days ago.
killdeer in ages. We used to have a lot of them around when I was growing up. In the second photo I think that possibly it is performing what Wikipedia referred to as a distraction display. They do this to protect nests and small chicks.
Over the course of the weekend I will hopefully catch up with everyone. Tomorrow there will be no post. Yes, can you believe I am taking the day off from posting on purpose? I'm going to the Healing Mother Earth Powwow with a friend of mine. It sounds interesting and it's certainly a good excuse to take some pictures. If you follow the link it will take you to a site that has a schedule of all of the Powwows in Ohio. You can also read what each of them has to offer. I don't know where my friend heard about it but she wanted to check it out so that's what we're doing.
Hope everyone is getting their weekend off to a good start.
