Baby Hawk update

I was able to get some better pictures of the baby hawks this time.

Our son in law David said he saw one of the three fly away earlier in the week.

One leaves the nest and goes to the tree limb edges but we never saw him fly.

On Saturday night we had bad storms the nest blew out of the tree both of these babies were on the ground. The one in the nest was hurt. They put them in a large dog kennel until Sunday morning.

They wanted to see if the one that had been flying could fly and he flew away.

They think the one in the nest is the weakest one he is much smaller than the others and does not have all the feathers just yet. Since he is injured they are going to try and get a hold of a wildlife rehab.

A neighbor told our daughter what to do so, for now, she is trying to rehab it. She is thinking it is more scared than injured.

The parents found the one that flew they kept calling out for the babies and that one answered. Right now they are rebuilding a new nest.

Sometimes wildlife needs our help to survive. I have truly enjoyed taking these little ones pictures I hope the injured one makes it.

Harvey update

For the most part, in our part of Brazoria County, we ended up with some rain about  5 3/4″ so far. They say more rain to come over the next 4 – 5 days. If it happens like this and is spread out the flooding won’t be as bad.

The wind has been pretty strong over night I would say gusting to 30 – 35 mph.

Our daughter lives about 15 minutes from us but closer to the coastal area and they were pounded overnight with winds and rain. It looks like 7 – 9 inches fell in that area according to the news.

We are waiting for daylight to see how our place looks.

There have been several tornadoes nearby but not here than we know of.

My husband spent 2 evenings trying to get out the generator to run and it would not make a spark.I spent two days on the phone and going store to store trying to find one to buy and everywhere they were sold out.

We have the most wonderful son in law David his dad had a extra generator he had gotten started so our son in law brought it here yesterday for us to have one in case we needed it.

I will update as the day goes on. We have not lost power yet.

 

Hurricane Harvey

We live near the Texas Gulf Coast between Houston and Galveston.

Hurricane Harvey is supposed to go in near Corpus Christi which would put us on the dirty side of the storm that gets all the rain. They say our area could get 21 – 28 inches of rain. Now the storm could change its mind at the last minute and not go in there they have been known to do this before. You never really know until it happens.

Right now the Gulf waters are very warm and these storms love that it allows them to increase in power. They are expecting Harvey to make it to a class 3 hurricane.

I am schelduling this post in case we lose power in the past we have been without power during hurricanes for over two weeks.

We have a generator we run for necessities and the computer is not one of those. I can access some with my phone unless the cell towers go down that too has happened in the past.

We have a really good Governor Greg Abbott he has preemptively declared a state of Disaster for 30 Texas counties and ours is one of those. We live in Brazoria County. By him doing this ahead of time it means our state would get help sooner than later.

A great big thank you to Greg Abbott.

I will post as soon as I can please keep Texas in your prayers.

 

 

 

 

After the rain

Mushrooms are fungi that lie dormant in the soil until the conditions are just right and usually they will bloom after a rain.

We have fertilized our yard 2 times so I am surprised to see any because the nitrogen in fertilizer normally gets rid of them in the soil.

I thought these were pretty neat looking so I decided to grab a few macro shots of them.
