08:20, 66F, mostly cloudy, calm. slept late. lil' rooster hasn't made a sound since I put him in with the big laying hens. had to check and make sure he was still alive. he is - just kinda stunned. rain out in the gulf. sure hoping we get some of it! we are so dry!
my little article on stingrays just came out in the march issue of natural history magazine. they are often late in publication due to financial problems but it's a good magazine. I use it to plot my way across the night skies..
11:30, high tide at CK. 70's, breeze from SW. worked on the 600 ft. seine. found a bunch of new holes and a torn lead line. serenaded by collared doves. tide was really high. wind was driving it in. probably a neap tide but didn't check it. you can see a lot more birds at low tide when the bars are all exposed.
17:00, tide still high at #4 bridge. sporatic ducks. wonder if they got left behind.. were they not paying attention when everyone else took off?
17:40, 76F at the farm, overcast, and lightly drizzling!! b'rer rabbit at the front gate. got 3 eggs. lil' rooster still not crowing but no violence is evident.. yard dogs all under the house. crows eating cat's food. took jack russell for a walk to water the cypress who are pretty with little green needles. yard dogs all appeared.
20:20, 71F and actually raining! checked radar and it doesn't seem extensive but I can hope!
