Willy Nilly Friday, November 23, 2018

Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday,
and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

1. Thanksgiving Day (Sky Watch Friday)
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, November 22, 2018
We had pleasant temperatures and beautiful blue skies on Thursday.

2. Good Food!
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, November 22, 2018
In September I sowed lettuce seeds in large plastic tubs. Since our nighttime temperatures began to drop below freezing, I have covered them each night. Now I am picking home-grown lettuce - in November!

3. Animal Shelter
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, November 7, 2018
The Tupelo-Lee County Humane Society recently moved into their new building.

It includes a clinic where the animals can be spayed or neutered before they are adopted.

4. Camouflage (Saturday's Critters)

Tishomingo County, Mississippi, USA, November 5, 2018
A pony trying to hide from my camera!

5. Eagle (I'd Rather B Birdin')
Pickwick, Tennessee, November 5, 2018
Because of the mottled brown and white feathers on its back and its dark beak, I think this is a juvenile Bald Eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus.

The young Bald Eagles do not have the white head and tail feathers of the adults until they are about five years old.

Have a wonderful day!

  4. Got down to zero today at the local weather station (5 above at our house)and we have beautiful blue skies when that happens. The pony sure fooled me for a couple of seconds. And your possible juvenile bald eagle needs a quick trip to the preening parlor! (must have been windy). Brrr!

    It really reinforces how much later your fall is than ours. Pretty colours!
