I took advantage of the opportunity when a small flock of Canadians made a U-turn in front of me. I saved several of them they were not as B&W as the Gulls.
They typically they don't fly in the fog, so it's left for Skunk-puppy, me and my coffee to unravel it to make sense of it all. The foggy days aren't lost however when worse comes to bad sitting there drinking coffee isn't bad either.
I am not able to handle a water hose any longer as it gets all tangled in the frame of my wheelchair; man how it does get wrapped around it. If I take it out on the Levee the wheels get caked with mud and more often then not I get stuck and she has to come and push me out; then hear about how I should use my scooter when out beyond the house; yeh I know
In a short while the critters will begin the mating season the best show in the world to watch. The Sea Gulls are already starting to develop their pecking order by fighting over the pylon.
At least the MacBook is fixed, I'm working on the iPad; it's a horse of a speckled color I will figure it out. Backing up my photos is the most important issue for me now, I don't want to lose any more. But it was a blessing and a curse as it enabled me to be rid of some of the fence riders; you know some of my favorites that had no further use except "feel good" for me. It will enable me to be more particular as what is a keeper.
Just off of Dutch Slough the levee has been breached filling a recently contoured 1800 acres into a wildlife preserve.
Any how this exercise was well worth it I cleared a ton of storage and the photo editors are working good now. Next is to take on Bridge and Photoshop the goal is to set it up for all of the data to be saved on an external drive.
Taking 300 keeper photographs translates into a considerable amount of time, luckily they take 5 minutes each. But after editing them the time comes to eliminate some, that may take 10 minutes per frame but it's a good problem to have.
During fire season they most likely head for a safe rookery a distance from their normal habitat. However the fog may be due only to not being able to see far enough to fly around.
It's best to feed them under a nearby tree as it guards them from being attacked from overhead as well as being shielded from the side the tree is on. Watching one direction improves their chance of survival if a predator makes an attempt.
