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."

Spring Photos Near Kingsley (May 8, 2017)

The Record's Pam Clark took these photos on my way to Kingsley on Monday. The mother owl was perched outside the nest watching over her sleeping owlets, which you can see nestled down in the nest. The corn planting photo was taken just about 3 miles south of Kingsley. She was able to get a shot of one of the eaglets. (The other one ducked down when she got out of my car.)

Spring Photos from Pam Clark (May 6, 2017)

The Record's Pam Clark took these spring photos on Saturday. The tractor one is a farmer discing north of Lawton and to the west of Chuck Hoelker's house on D12. The West Fork levels are up after the recent rains, and what was a small little islet was completely covered until Saturday some of it started appearing. The Canadian geese were just trying to find a little bit of room to stand on it. The cattle are her husband Glenn's calves. The street to the baseball diamonds is all abloom. These trees are so pretty this time of year.
