I talked with my brother on the phone yesterday and had the eagle feeding place on, with eagles calling a lot, and ravens cronking, and in the middle my brother suddenly asked "tell me, from where are you phoning? Middle of the wood?"

Or that happened this morning:
I had the cam's running and made some things in the house. Suddenly I heard some very loud eagle call's. I ran upstairs in to the room. My husband was sleeping (till then :laugh: ) and asked me: "What was that?!?!? "And I said: "Ohhhh, that was Sulev.. He's mating :headroll: ".
Than my hubby said nothing :mrgreen: .
For some months ago a friend of my said to me that 'videos are not good to record sounds'. No, you are not right, I said. Then I allowed him to listen to the Estonian Black storks calling in Estonia on a squirrel video I had taken in Finland! :D The storks begin to call at the 45 seconds from beginning:

I will be in hospital from the 6th March - I don't know how many days it will take - at least 5 said one doctor(some of my backbones need correction, the 3rd-4th-5th spinal vertebraes will be fixed somehow...it will be alright...it's nothing special... :dunno: )
So, after the 6th March I have to be off PC for some days or a couple of weeks.
I´m so sorry your backbones gives you trouble Olga. I wish you a successful operation, and a good recovery afterwards.

My husband took this picture of "our" squirrel today. Now he has become a regular guest..

What a nice photo, Lussi! I see them running, but always far away or too fast.

Dear Olga,sorry you have to have that operation on your vertebrae. Our son had that about 4 years ago. He had to take a long recovery time before he could take the pland back to his home. But he could sit without any problems. I wish you all the best. :2thumbsup:

Where do you want to share it, macdoum? I guess since they don't lock their page to "only Facebook", it can be shared. "We" do that on Facebook too, and that's what they also want, I think. They have really nice photos!

Yes, Felis, it was really quite a spring day here today, -1.

Sunset:


Background music: Desert spirit, offered by youtube.
:wave: All natural sounding voices to be heard on the video are from the musical composition, not from Squirrel hill.
I am just waiting for the summer, and chose this music by change.
at 20:35 the background music was not yet ready.. it will be that soon!
