I've noticed the birds at my feeder are getting more colorful. I think some of those that flew south for the winter are back and ready for summer to be here. The only problem is, it snowed again and they all seemed confused by it. This guy spent time at the feeder but any other bird that showed up scared him to death.
Here he is trying to fly away when a cardinal came to eat. We have liftoff.
I know I've mentioned this before but I live in the country. The nearest town to me is a very small town. For years now people have complained about the police department being corrupt. I know that back when my parents were young everything here was corrupt. People "accidentally" fell from 5th floor hotel room windows and no one ever saw a thing. That was a long time ago. I'm not sure now how crooked the police department is or if they are just trying to protect the citizens with very little money. Saturday night a policeman in town ran over a man, dragged his body under the car for 10 blocks to the police station and didn't realize he had done it. I don't know all the facts about the case so I am not going to point fingers at anyone right now. I just do not understand how you can hit someone with your car and drag their body half a mile and not realize it. The police chief is saying the officer didn't know until he got to the station and saw the man under the back of the car. The man who died was probably drinking, he was known for partying a little, but that doesn't change the facts. It had snowed the night before and that day and there was a little snow on the streets. Once again that shouldn't change the fact that anyone would have noticed if they hit an adult sized human with a car and surely would have felt the bumps as they drove along. I'm not sure what is going to happen with this whole mess but I wish the family of the deceased AND the police officers family peace. If it was an accident this policeman is going to be miserable for the rest of his life. If it wasn't an accident I hope the right people are punished....and the family of the man who was killed can get on with their lives.
