Tuesday June 9, 2020 Monte Rio CA.
Yep, that sounded like a good thing to do today so I headed on down to Monte Rio to the launch ramp and put my boat in the water.
After a good break in that spot I tried to paddle down river but ran into a gravel bar so instead of walking my boat through it I turned and headed back up the river to this spot where I thought I saw an osprey in the nest in the dead tree up ahead, in the center of this picture.
With school out and lots of people not working lots of people were on the river enjoying the day, too many for me. :O)
I paddled back to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
Joe calls and wants some chicks for his broody hen
Late in the afternoon I got a phone call. Joe wanted to know if he could buy three of my new chicks as one of his hens was broody and he wanted to give her some chicks to take care of as he needed to add some new birds to his flock.
Normally I wouldn’t sell any of my chicks but Joe is a good friend so I said to come on over and pick out three of the newer ones which are about a week old.
Jo arrived and caught all the little birds and put them in a little box so they could choose which ones they wanted. The box wasn’t tall enough and the chicks where escaping and they were trying to catch them and get them back in the box.
They were finally able to pick three chicks and headed for home.
By then the day was mostly over so I did some chair hopping and enjoyed the evening.
