Welcome to Sawyers Landing. My goal is to share things I see from our backyard and neighboring woods and trails. I will mix in family gatherings and possibly some decorating updates. And of course pictures of Russell.
Not a bad day. Colder but sunny. Jake and I went out in the woods. The hope again was to see some Bald Eagles along the river and we were also on the lookout for old railroad tracks sticking out of the ground. My neighbor told me about them...just didn't say exactly where. Tracks from an old coal mine. We didn't find them this time...something to look forward to. Jake got some video of our adventure.
Good food and good times once again. Ended the night with our usual Royal Rummy.
Wednesday I was home and Russ was barking at something in the woods (nothing new) and I went to the window in time to see a red fox run by just behind our fence. It was mid-morning so good light to see it. I know they live in the woods but this was my first sighting and it was pretty cool. I did not take these pictures but this is what I saw...
Cindy would normally describe herself as a Hawk fan...but not of this one.
I saw him flying in the neighborhood one day last week. Later that morning Cindy called to say there was a hawk on top of our neighbor's house and that there was blood on the deck. Russ was going nuts over the whole thing. I told her the hawk would fly off if Russ went outside. Well it moved to a tree in the backyard but didn't want to fly off. No body was found but clearly something happened.
I was thinking this morning that we haven't seen any deer for awhile. I was in the house when one caught my eye moving in the woods. And pretty soon here comes a doe walking toward our yard. I had to close the door on Russ so I could see what was going on. Along came a fawn. Got some fun video of it jumping and running. And then came the buck crashing out of the woods and then the family followed him back into the trees. I did get one picture of the buck before they disappeared...
