June was a very busy month for us!   We had a special visit from my cousin, aunt, and grandmother from FL.  We've also been traipsing about in the woods and mountains quite a bit.   We also have had a lot going on at home.  

Zinnia hatched 4 eggs.  The chicks were adorable!  They were doing so well until I forgot to shut the hen house one night.  We woke up to the dog going crazy.  When we went to check it out, a raccoon had just finished off our chicks.  All of the other hens were just paralyzed on their roosts, waiting for their turn.  That was so disappointing.  We have 12 more eggs brooding right now and I'm sure I won't that mistake again. 

We've been up at Tremont quite a bit for bird banding.

After bird banding, we usually go for a walk or hike.

It's been a great summer so far!
