Notebook Jottings

June 7, 2009 Notebook Entry:

"When I first spotted the red-eared slider on its back I hoped it was still alive, because this position for most turtles is a literal sentence to a long and agonizing death. As I got closer I realized that it was way to late for saving. How it got into this position is any one's guess."

May 23, 2009 Notebook Entry:

"I checked my bluebird box and found another set of eggs a couple weeks ago. This is the first year I've had a second clutch in the same season. I've read that if you remove the nest used for the first successful clutch in a given season it somehow encourages them to lay a second clutch. I did this and the results speak for themselves."

"Wow....when I spotted this DOR (dead on road) cottonmouth I was in awe. It was eight inches shy of being four feet in length and near three inches in width. What a specimen, but unfortunately no longer with us. I like all snakes even the poisonous ones and my friends call that crazy."

"I'm thirsty as heck so I shotgun a beer, sit back on the porch and watch as a brown-headed nuthatch on the pine snag out front entertains is good."
