Big Wind

This little guy stood in one place long enough for me to get a picture. Quite unusual for them to do, and it's the only one I've seen around here. It's about the size of a robin, and there's nothing in my Birds of Saskatchewan book that looks exactly like it, but my guess is that it's a sandpiper of some sort.

In other news, this is our second windier-than-usual day:

And now one of the yearling cats accompanies me and the dogs on our walk:
He kept up for the entire 2.7 kilometres, too.

And then he and his sister make me curse and grit my teeth when I step out onto the deck and find them curled up together in a flower pot. Right on top of a steel dragonfly I have put there to deter them. They don't seem to notice it.
