We have had such wonderful weather this winter in Florida after three cold winters in Florida and Texas. We wore shorts and tee shirts quite a bit this winter. Unfortunately, we started north a little too early and are now having a couple nights of cold weather before the temperature heads again toward 80 degrees.
The Sand Hill Cranes here stay out of sight in the shrubs but we hear them regularly as if they are outside our door. They have a distinctive sound that one bird book described as a ‘low, loud, musical rattle’. From the sounds they emit, there must be a bunch of them.
We have improved the appearance of our homemade television antenna by replacing the board with plastic water pipes. This also allowed better mounting to the extension pole giving us much more height. We are still pleased with the reception we get with this antenna and the additional height brings in more channels sometimes.
