Snow, silence and a white winter greet horses' hunt for grass.

This was the scene of our daughters ranch in Indiana earlier this week.  The snow eventually accumulated to 9+ inches.  I love the hush that falling snow pushes down. It looks like a White Christmas for her family.

Blackbird well skilled at diversionary tactics


This agitated Red-Winged Blackbird was doing everything he could to catch my attention and draw it away from his nest in Mishawaka's (Indiana) Central Park on the St. Joseph River.  When I turned around, he would fly in front of me to keep me looking at him

I didn't see the nest, but I got a good idea where it was when I walked over to a tree near the overlook by the dam.  He made a couple of close swooshes past me to make sure I was focusing on him.

He was a darned good watchman.

Blue Heron stands sentry at fishing grounds


Despite the fact that this Great Blue Heron seems to favor this Mishawaka, IN, park as a favorite fishing hole, he didn't seem to be having much luck the day we spent some time together.  The spot is in Central Park at a small dam.  You can see the splash from the dam in the background.

Blue Heron stands watch at Mishawaka Dam in South Bend, IN

This blue heron was standing watch below the Mishawaka Dam at Central Park in South Bend, Indiana where we were visiting my daughter's family last week.
It didn't look like he was having much luck finding lunch. Maybe he was just trying to keep cool in the 90-degree heat.
