Bear Attack

All summer long we have seen the evidence of a bear's frequent visits to our garden. Several times our birdfeeders have been destroyed and the iron shepherd's crooks that hold the birdfeeders have been bent down to the ground about 90 degrees. We have crossed our fingers hoping that our beehives would be safe. Up until last night, the bears had stayed away from our beehives. Unfortunately, last night the unthinkable happened and we arose this morning to find our hives strewn all over the ground. Jack had been placing a motion detector camera by our birdfeeders each night in hopes of capturing a picture of this roving black bear. Last night the camera took a picture.......but unfortunately, this is all it captured.....

Our Crazy Guineas

This is the life of our crazy guinea fowl.......basically, they spend the day travelling in a pack all over the farm and all over the neighbors' properties. We can always tell where they are at any given moment by their characteristic squawking that sounds more like fingernails on a chalkboard! At night they fly into a tree next to the barn and roost over the heads of our horses.


  1. they've really grown and feathered ourt nicely.

  2. so very sorry about the bee hives..are the bees still around close by?

  3. I'm sorry to hear about the hives. Hopefully the bear will move on and not do any more damage.
