Barn swallows, part 2

July 18, 2011 | Iowa,Summer

Remember the nest of barn swallows we waited out so the baby birds could live? Well, the little boogers are at it again. They moved to the other corner by the front door. As if I wouldn’t notice.

My friend Tracy says barn swallows are good luck. John Switzer of The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch agrees.

But they’re supposed to be good luck in a barn.

Hey, I can use all the good luck I can get. But, c’mon, birds. Go back to the barn.

Critter, 2

March 30, 2010 | Iowa

Remember the critter in our barn, the one that turned out to be an ermine? Yeah, it didn’t make it. I was surprised at how small it was. I thought maybe it had a nest. But this one can’t be fully grown, can it?

We have a critter living in our barn. I tweeted about it on Sunday, wondering what kind of critter it could be. I got lots of ideas from Twitter and Facebook: ermine, weasel, mink, opossum, Edgar Winter, cat. I’ve got some pictures. It was dark, and the critter was fast, but it looks like it’s all white with a black tip on its tail. Anyway … it’s not easy to see much in the pictures … just look for the green demon eyes. Any ideas?
