|Red Tailed Hawk|
So, I left out the electric cube heater, turned it on just before going to bed, and the outside temperature only got down to the mid 50's. Even running at it's lowest wattage (it adjusts the wattage & fan speed depending on room temperature) it got the inside of the trailer up to 70°F.
A quiet day. I spent the morning reading forums, web pages & a book (currently Greg Bear's Legacy) then decided to head to the David Crockett Restaurant here in the park for lunch. The original plan was to go for dinner, but luckily, I checked the menu posted at the bathrooms, and they are only open for dinner on the weekends. I had the buffet, which included a good salad bar, a couple of main dishes, including ribs, and many sides along with a couple of desserts. A good feed for $8.99.
I stopped next door to see if the museum followed the same schedule as the restaurant, but it wasn't open today either. I did take a couple of more hawk photos. I know the first one is a Red Tailed since the cage is labeled, not as sure about the second (which is the same one as yesterday's hawk photo). No label on the cage as there is for the Red Tailed, and it doesn't have a red tail, but I've seen Red Tailed Hawks that didn't have red tails. Still, the chest feathers are different as well. If it is something else, I'm sure someone will let me know. The other hawk photo is at today's LakeshoreImages page.
After that it was back to the trailer and more reading. A passing thunderstorm and brisk winds kept me inside. So far, the bathroom vent repair seems to be holding - no drips.
Dinner will be snacks - I filled up at lunch.
Until next time -
