My Fish Ohio Crappie

I went onto Lake Hodgson Yesterday and caught my personal record Black Crappie. It was 17" long and 2.5 pounds.
What a beautiful fish.
I also caught a 14" Black Crappie on the same trip.
You can see their size on a 20.5" cooler top.
What a great day on the lake.

Scotty McCreery Show

We went to see Scotty on Friday night at the Akron Civic Theater. It was a great show and a big crowd. I took my small Canon Elph and here are some photos.

Here are the wife and I before the show.
Scotty came out with a light show.
He has some great songs.
It was a great show.
It moved along with no breaks.
He did come back for 5 more minutes for an extended show.

One of the best country shows I have seen.

Great Blue Heron

Here are some photos of my favorite big bird. This on was at Brady Lake and I was close.
 It flew to the other side of the lake and landed near a Mallard Duck.
This one was along the Cuyahoga River.
Here is one that was fishing at Hudson Springs Park.
These two were raising chicks at CVNP at the rookery.
I hope you enjoyed my big bird.

Back Yard Visitors 3

My final visitor to the back yard. I heard the screech call of a hawk . I looked into the pine trees and this is what I found. In the very to was a hawk.
I zoned in closer to see.
A little closer and it was a Red Shouldered Hawk. Can you see the red on the shoulder of the wing?
It did like to pose.
It was very comfortable at the top of the tree and put on a show.
I hope you enjoyed my visitors as much as I did.

Back Yard Visitors 2

I have had some interesting visitors to the back yard. My yard backs up to a wooded area that does have wildlife so even though I'm in the city of Kent I get a variety of critters into the yard.

I had the triplets show up last week. They are beautiful with their spots and fun to watch. They showed up alone for at least 15 minutes alone.
 They are such a majestic animal. 
Mom did finally come to graze.
This on gave me a pose to be remembered.
They went to the back to play a bit and were gone in a flash.
 See tomorrow what else showed up.

Back Yard at Home 1

I have had some interesting visitors to the back yard. Something large landed on my garden shed. Let's see what it is.

It sure is big.
Why, it is a Turkey Vulture or Turkey Buzzard when they return to Hinckley, Ohio each year. 


It did some posing, good for photos.

Then it flew away.
Come back tomorrow to see what else showed up..
