I Tawt I saw a Puddy Tat!!


This is the back ally where almost all of the
Kestrel pictures were captured. The building on the extreme left is where the nest was.












The flat roof is the location where the first female and later a couple of the males landed and hopped around. Down and to the Right is another roof belonging to the Blair Cinema... long ago abandoned.








Now! I will tell you I have worked in this area for 9 years and have never seen cats. So when we discovered the babies had hopped over onto the Blair Cinema roof we weren't too concerned. We thought they would be safe there until they could learn to fly up up and away.











The next picture proves that I was WRONG about cats.. We were almost hysterical wondering where the Kestrels were, as we had seen more than one of them hop over onto this roof that evening. I know you can find the puddy tat but can you find the Kestrel?



Click and look in the B of the 'Blair Cinema' sign! We didn't know this until we came home and put the pictures on the computer. Barbie called me screaming 'it's in the B' and I'm thinking 'What?' By far an exciting evening on the Kestrel Watch.
(And no this was NOT photo-shopped)
All six babies were sighted since then so NO! none were eaten by the puddy tat.

Lordy, what happened? I hope the cat never got the kestrel. You need to capture some cats and take them to the animal shelter.

My daughter started to do that and ended up with 11 cats, had them all fixed and 9 are still there outside. She feeds them twice a day, has places for them to get in out of the weather and treats them for any illness she observes. So it ended up costing a lot of money not to turn them over to the animal farm. LOL

They still will kill birds and rabbits and bring them to the back door to show them to her. She is at wits end about it.

Thanks to you and others, I get a big lift out of trying to outdo myself and post things that may surprise some and make others laugh a bit and most of all make lots of people aware of things that might not know much about.

When somebody actually takes the time to write a comment about my work and what I do, that to me is the biggest gift a person can give another. It is a smile on greeting, it is a welcome handshake, and it gives me and my family some hope that the dementia farm is still down the road.

You, yourself, are an inspiration to me. I come back not only to say, "thanks for visiting and leaving a comment" but thanks for taking the time to photograph things of interest and great beauty. Without that, blogging would be about as exciting as a wart on the end of my nose.

So, thanks for stopping at my blog. And rest assured, when you do, I will always try to visit your blog, in return, and leave a comment on your blog. I might not think your photography is ready for the masterpiece award, but it got my attention.

I get up about 4:00 AM, get my coffee my wife fixes to come on at 4:00 AM, then go out to my computer and see what happened to my stuff over night. I usually start then to do what I am doing now except this morning I was out early painting the rest of the shutters I didn't get done yesterday and the shutters around our patio door. I just got done with that and painting three benches so I am behind as it is 11:10 AM.

Thanks,

I'm pretty sure that cat has a worried look on his face!! Can you imagine what that kestrel would do to that cat if it got near those babies!!!
Great shot!!!

One of the funniest things that ever happened during a photo shoot! That puddy cat looks harmless...but...you know it is NOT! haha

I am so glad the kestrels are safe!

Stacey Huston said...

LOL. so glad the babies are doing fine. That cat does not look happy with you though, My guess would be he had other plans for the kestrels..Thanks for sharing these photos with us.. and thanks for watching out for the babies.
