Mag Pie Visitor

This Mag Pie has gotten me pretty well trained I guess. When he comes to the feeder, and I don't have any suet out for him to eat or carry off, he looks in the window at me sitting at my desk. Cocks his head as if to say, hey buddy what's up. Then he will fly off to a post where he will sit until I bring out some suet to the feeder. As soon as I'm back inside he's there for his snack. Smart Bird to have me trained so well.

2006 Council Oak Tree Ceremony

(This is a reprint from the Muscogee Nation News) November 2006

2006 Council Oak Tree Ceremony

"One hundred and seventy six years ago, the first Muscogee Creeks traveled across the land on what has become known as the Trail of Tears. They brought with them ashes of sacred ceremonial fires from the ancestral homeland in the southeast; and these ashes were spread beneath the towering oak tree (now known as the Council Oak) overlooking the Arkansas River. This become the chosen site to establish the Loca Pokv Tribal town which later became the city of Tvlse."

The tree still stands in the Metropolis of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Flyer at the feeder

I haven't posted anything lately, because I'm missing my favorite squirrel. He's not been around, I'm sure everyone remembers fatso. Well, he's gone missing for a while now. I'm just wishing he is okay. He is an older squirrel and everyone knows how fat he is. I just hope some predator hasn't caught up with him. I'll let you know if he shows back up soon.

Until then here is another shot of one of the flyers who has been frequenting the feeder at night.
