  1. This hen is doing her level best to rid my front yard of grass hoppers today.

  2. Talk about your ambiguous subject lines!:wink:

    Nice shot. Glad to see you're on the mend.

    Hi Dave,

    I can't imagine having one of these in my yard! Great image from composition to colors. I never thought about these eating grasshoppers!
  4. Hic.. Huh???

    Thanks Andy. They get real bold when the hoppers are out in force. I have had this bird in view for sveral hours now. Sometimes a whole gang will come out.
  5. Nice Capture, Looks like she is still looking for something to eat.
  6. Thanks Gary. I suspect she has a nest nearby as I have seen her alone for 3 days now and it is soon time for the poults to hatch if they have not already.

    Very neat capture Dave.
  8. Thanks Frank!
  9. Nice job! Would be very cool if you end up with a view of the new little guys! :biggrin:
  10. Thanks Gretchen and it is very likely that I will. I discovered yesterday that there is a feral cat hanging around and that can be trouble. The last feral cat I had around here I spent a year taming and catcheing her and bringing her into my dog filled home. No room for another but I will try and find a good resolution somehow.
  11. Hi Dave all my hens I guess are in the woods with their young as I have not seen but a few come for a hand out of corn and these are Toms. But I have some great memories I captured last winter when the time was getting close for the big boys to come out og hideing. I was able to record them with my camera. You can hear them hers if you like.
