Friday cat blogging on Saturday

PuddyTat staked out a place under the feeders hoping for a protein supplement. There were some grey feathers scattered around so somebody must have caught a chickadee.
Dude watched Tom and LittleOne have a bit of a scuffle.
Lady watched too.
Jellico just watched me wondering if he should run.
Tim went about her own business.
LittleOne stretched out after the encounter with Tom.
Tom kept an eye on him.
Eventually they settled near each other.
Tim won't drink well water if there is rainwater pooled somewhere.
It was another lovely day in the neighborhood.

This is November?

Shirley and I went walking today. This is a field up at the nature preserve near Linesville. You can't see it in this photo but there is a deer carcass in the field. We could see some birds on the carcass including a huge brown one but we couldn't see them well.
This is a closer view. Sorry I couldn't get a better photo. A lady with a huge telescope appeared and said it was an immature bald eagle and a couple of crows. Shirley had never seen an eagle before. We walked the nature path and found a bunch of people with telescopes watching when we got back. An adult eagle was on the carcass so the first lady let Shirley look thru her scope. There were more than a dozen other eagles, mostly young ones, in trees in the neighborhood. It was very exciting for Shirley. I enjoy seeing the eagles but see them often enough to not get excited.
Then we walked my neighborhood woods. This is the north entrance to our bay.
This is a pond north of our bay.
This is the view from what used to be a party cliff up the lake.
It certainly was a gorgeous day in the neighborhood, especially for mid November.

Miscellaneous photos

The snow I drove home in on Friday night between Conneaut Lake and Hartstown was still on the ground Sunday morning.
There was a bit of a traffic tieup on I-279 this morning. This was taken from the Giant Eagle parking lot. This line of headlights went all the way in town. The photo is embiggenable.
Meanwhile Tim was sunning herself. It was a beautiful day in the kingdom.
