I was hoping, with the warm temperatures and rapidly melting snow, to spot a robin today. I thought I heard one singing in the distance on my walk this morning. I took my camera and set out to find one after work but no luck today. My dad and my brothers Mike and Joe would…

They Say Beauty Is In the Eye Of Beholder, What Do You Think, Is This Turkey Beautiful Or Ugly?

About a month ago, a flock of gobblers, male turkeys, chased off the hens that had been wintering in my back yard and have been visiting ever since. Like the deer, they have their feeding hierarchy  with the bigger, older birds eating first. I threw  out some sunflower seeds yesterday afternoon and was able to…

Back Down to the Lehigh, Still Frozen But Signs of Spring.

Got a little warmer today, and sure felt Spring in the air but still a lot of snow out there and not many options on hiking in the woods. Once again I headed down to the Lehigh Gorge to take advantage of the trails made by the snowmobilers. The river is still mainly frozen and…

The Lehigh River Gorge, sure looked more like January than March, pretty, but still a frozen world.

      I am not a cross country skier or snow shoer so not many options where I can walk in this heavy snow pack. Thanks to the local snowmobilers, there is always a somewhat clear trail in the Lehigh River Gorge.       Took advantage of this and headed down there on…

Dinosaurs are Cool. And there are a lot of their bones, and other cool stuff at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia.

It seems like only yesterday that I got my first book on dinosaurs. It was a  How and Why  Wonder Book.   I was in first grade and I was fascinated. Back then all we had were the basics. The Brontosaurus,  the Tyrannosaurus, the Stegosaurus. and a few others.  I was so excited seeing them when my dad took me to…
