Thanks, guys. I thought he was pretty comical. Mike, I think he is a baby grackle, probably fledged a little too early by the storm. I heard grackle noise a bit later. Papa was chasing a squirrel and had found baby and led him away somehow, because he didn't fall in the pond.

Yikes! Is that a possibility? If so, I would have been tempted to move it away from the pond and not take a chance on it falling in. It was not making the usual irritating baby grackle or starling noises. However, I have not had much for catbird activity here this spring like I normally do. Lots of people in the area, including the experienced birders, have commented on how different the bird patterns were this spring.

    • Watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg) or when it swings up past 30.0 Hg. That's my reference on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. 
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
