The hot days are here to stay, which means lots of cool snacks and naps in the shade. The young chickens are now spending time exploring and foraging for bugs. The two families of Canadian geese that live in the field have been taking trips to the barn to feast on cracked corn. The geese, ducks and chickens all scatter in confusion. They watch on the sidelines looking extremely perplexed about the whole situation. Phoebe and Finn are molting like mad and leaving a path of feathers everywhere they go! The horses are enjoying rolling around in the freshly cut grass. The goats are keeping an eye on the newly introduced male turkey named Gobbles. Come take a look at the daily happenings on the farm.
What are the daily happenings in your neck of the woods? Are you enjoying any animal sightings in your own backyard? My birdhouse near my vegetable garden has just become filled with newly hatched house finches! They aren't vocal yet since they are so young, but I'm excited to start hearing those tiny peeps! The hummingbirds are back, and so is the family of groundhogs that lives under my shed. I love getting to see all of this activity again! Have any fun wildlife stories? Share with me in the comment section below or tweet me @thefreckledrose. Hope you are enjoying the summer so far!
