American Crow, October 23, 2019

Wild Bird Wednesday and My Corner of the World

Click on the photo for a better view.

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, October 13, 2019
American Crows, Corvus brachyrhynchos, are entirely black, including the bill and legs. They are social birds with strong family ties, inquisitive, and intelligent. They are ground foragers and will eat almost anything. Crows are known for their hoarse cawing sounds, and large flocks can be very annoying.

Have a great day!

Persimmons, October 22, 2019

ABC Wednesday and Our World Tuesday
P is for Persimmons - The edible fruit from several species of trees in the genus Diospyros.

Colbert County, Alabama, USA, October 18, 2019
American Persimmons, Diospyros virginiana, are harvested in the Autumn after the first frost. They can be eaten raw or cooked. But don't try to eat them early; they need the chill to sweeten them up!

Have a wonderful day!

I have photographed this barn before, but when I saw the horse sticking its head out the window...

Thankful Thursday, October 17, 2019

Thankful Thursday and Little Things Thursday

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 16, 2019
I am thankful for Veterinarians!

Big Jay had not been feeling well for a few days, and when he stopped eating I took him to our veterinarian. The knowledgeable, friendly people working at the clinic soon diagnosed his problem - a urinary tract infection. And he was dehydrated, so Dr. C. gave him fluids by IV and prescribed an antibiotic. If you have ever tried to give a cat a pill, then you know I am doubly THANKFUL that the antibiotic is in liquid form!

Have a blessed day!
