Thursday Thirteen

1. Last evening we went for a walk.

2. On a rock, I found a very large eggshell.

3. My husband surmised it was a turkey or duck egg. Definitely not a chicken or a little bird.

4. I thought maybe it was a buzzard or vulture egg.

5. A little later we found many feathers in lots of colors, mostly black and blue.

6. What happened here?

7. My husband surmised (he was surmising a lot) that it was a coyote, perhaps.

8. We did not find any dead birds.

9. We did not find any live ones, either.

10. We did see a few deer. One was across the road but her snort carried a long ways in the quiet evening hour. It startled us.

11. Deer don't seem to have voices but they do have large snorts and other sounds that I am sure have meaning to other deer.

12. I've run out of things to say.

13. Somehow this posted earlier before I even started it, so if you have a blank entry that was a mistake.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; you can learn more about it here. My other Thursday Thirteens are here.


  1. My husband surmises a lot too, until I have to ask him to stop...

  2. I like your Thursday Thirteen. I should do it for my blog.

    I heard a fawn crying for its mother and it sounded like a cat.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
