February 18, 2018 – The sun shined and the day warmed up. We took a jeep ride to the Resaca Battlefield Park in Resaca, Georgia. Walking along Camp Creek I encountered the bleached bones of a bird. The beak is several inches long and vertebrae near by were relatively large. I would thing it was a Great Blue Heron.
The weekend was wet and cold. We spent most of yesterday at a wrestling tournament and most of today playing cards and working on school work. Loaded all of my feeders yesterday and this guy cam to visit the peanut butter suet today.
I have joined the ranks of Facebook followers hunting for painted rocks around town. It seems it is another summer craze much like Pokemon was last summer. I have hunter Geocaches Letterboxes, and Munzees at one time or another, so it is kinda natural for me to join in. Here are my first three finds:

Visited the nesting site on the west side of Calhoun this afternoon. This guy is not in the nest. Last siting was this past Monday evening. I cannot recall ever seeing a hawk nest in the wild.
May 28, 2017: We took the Jeep to attempt a geocache near the Dry Creek Trailhead in Chatooga County this morning. Along one section of the road toward the Pinhoti Trail there were several clumps of Milkweed being visited by Black Swallowtails.
