Peonies at Arlington Township Cemetery

These photos are from The Record's Pam Clark.  She writes, "Last week at Arlington Township Cemetery, the peonies were in full bloom. My great grandfather Charles Ford and his son, Art planted all these beautiful plants many years ago. They are a living legacy to these two men who were sextons at the cemetery for a combined total of 70 years. Our current sexton, Clint Thomsen, and his assistant, Jeff Locke, have done a marvelous job this spring of keeping the cemetery mowed and trimmed. It looks beautiful.  Thanks, guys, for all your hard work."

Eagles & Other Birds from Pam Clark

The Record's Pam Clark took these photos last week of the Midway eagles.  One parent is always on guard in a nearby tree. If anyone approaches it gives the signal for the eaglets to duck down in the nest. 

Pam also spotted a robin's nest with 3 little ones, right beside the door going into the Moville Senior Center.  And there is an owl photo as well.

Bird Pictures from Roger Wilson

Roger Wilson recently sent us these bird pictures with the following information:

"Here are two not-so-commonly seen Iowa birds that my son-in-law, Joris van Drunen Little, took photos of on the Fanchon Haddock farm this Sunday. The first one is a towhee. I think it gets its name from the song it sings which sounds like “toe” “hee”. The second one is the rose-breasted grosbeak, which sings a very beautiful song."
