Waiting for me in Ashland was this Screech-Owl in a grape arbor next to Kirk Gooding’s home.  He took these pictures.  The local Scrub-Jay had complained loudly but the owl simply ignored him._MG_4227 _MG_4241 _MG_4247GY-AGY-BGY-TREEOWhen I was a kid in the Ozarks we had many wasps that built mud nests under overhangs.  My mother disparagingly called them “mud-daubers.”  I would say these small dabblers are the true mud daubers.  There were hundreds of Green-winged Teal at Ankeny today.  I could not find a single Common Teal among ’em.mudders


Mallards, Long-billed Dowitchers, a Pintail–going after that pond scum.  At Ankeny.
