Maasai Mara : In Brief

You all must have seen the Discovery Channel and the National Geographic Channel and in it the Lions & the other Big Cats, the African Elephants, the Wild Beast and the various flora and fauna of the forest with many different species of animals. Well! They are mostly from Africa and most importantly from the Maasai Mara, in Kenya. Maasai Mara is situated in Kenya and is one of Africa’s greatest Wildlife Reserves. It is considered as the world’s top and most favorite Safari Destination and this is due to its spectacular Eco-System…..Read More.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Google


The Tale of Google the Squirrel

This week’s tale is a fellow blogger’s post that I read and thought was so special, I knew it would be perfect for a Tuesday Tale.

The squirrel below was brought to Ron and his wife, Michelle, at only a few days old by some children who found her under a tree.

Ron & Michelle cared for this squirrel themselves and, as you can tell from the photo below, they did a wonderful job!

Injured Bird

Birds are so fun to watch fly around, not to mention how enjoyable it is to listen to them sing. Cino also enjoys watching them out the window and does a funny ducking down into “attack” mode when they fly by. This Mother’s Day our family enjoyed watching beautiful birds out a “Bird Viewing” window at a cute store in a small town. There is no doubt birds are beautiful and fun to have around.

Unfortunately today, when I was driving home on my lunch break, I noticed a bird in the middle of the road. I noticed something else next to the bird and my first thought was the bird was just eating something from the ground. As I got closer, the bird flew away. Unsure of what was lying in the road, I drove around it and as I passed by and was looking down, I found myself eye to eye with a very injured bird.

Be Patient-It’s a Life

Spring is here! A time for new life for our animal friends.

Tonight on the way home from work I was sitting at a stop sign that is right by a park. I noticed there were four geese and a bunch of babies trotting along in the grass. It is so enjoyable to watch the babies stay so close to their parents and follow their every move. But they were all heading toward the road and I thought “oh, oh, they are going to try to cross.”

This is a very busy intersection, where I can sit for many minutes myself trying to get across. So, of course, I became very concerned about their safety.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Not Your Typical Tale


The tale of Jock

This Tuesday’s Tale is not about a dog or cat like they usually are. This is a tale about a bat.

A bat was spotted where I work by some children. Now, keep in mind it is winter and, although we have had unusually warm weather, they are supposed to be in hibernation. This bat was hanging around a bench outside.
