Any birders out there? I’m having trouble IDing a hawk caught on our trail cam. I’m guessing it is a juvenile. The Merlin app is offering Cooper’s Hawk, Sharp-shinned Hawk and Northern Goshawk, but I still can’t pin it down after looking thru hundreds of Google images. The area is in Minnesota, heavily wooded surrounded by farm fields.
A.M. Temp: 61. DP 59
The rainy spell has ended for now. According to our weather station, we received 9″ of rain this month, most of it this last two weeks! It will be interesting to see the drought map on Thursday.
Honey has health problems. The high blood pressure was discovered at the dentist and he’s trying to treat it himself by limiting his sodium intake. That’s not the big problem. For the first time he walked with me last evening. I walked at his pace. His left foot was making a slapping noise. He says it feels like it is asleep. He claims it started yesterday. From what I can gather he’s developed foot drop, which is a symptom of something else–stroke, diabetes, neuro-muscular disease. He’s going to wait to see if it gets better. How do I get a man who hasn’t been to a doctor in 10 years to the doctor???
