      Chipper, a very active, adventurous dog who loves to follow a scent, is taking a Nose Work class. Nose work teaches a dog to seek a hidden scent. It is fun, challenging, and very intellectually stimulating for the dog. You can play this game with your dog at home and have a great time together doing it. If you are really serious about it, with advanced training you and your dog can even enter Nose Work competitions.

        Chipper has finally learned to fetch his ball and drop it in my hand. Gypsy and Canela, my two alpacas, love to watch Chipper's fetching antics. They seem to be very engaged by it all.

              For at least five days a lynx stalked the Sandhill Crane family on Inspiration Ridge Preserve. While I did not get footage of the attack, this video was taken during the days the cranes were evading the predators. Their nervous behavior reflects the ordeal they were going through. During the day, I watched tired adults and colt nod off more frequently than is normal. They were clearly tired from their night time evasive tactics. It is truly amazing how adapted these birds are in their survival techniques.ut Lesser Sandhill Crane Family Day after Lynx Attack

                Sandhill Crane colts start exercising their wings as soon as they are out and about. Even the young fluff balls just a few days old run after their parents flapping their wings. I did not get much of the early flight training for this video, but I did get the more intense training that occurs right before the colt fledges.

                  In mid-August, after the colts have fledged, the Sandhill Crane flocks start gathering in Homer, Alaska. Families join the non-breeding flocks and travel with them to the local roosts for the night. During the day, the flocks visit favorite feeding areas. They frequently will take off to fly around and then settle once again for some feeding, preening, or resting.
