Curiousfarmer started with an emphasis on Farmer, but over the first 100 posts, has evolved into an emphasis on Curious. That’s good. I can always be curious.
I started this blog to share what I know about farming. I quickly realized how little I know, and how boring it is to only write what I know. It’s way more fun and interesting to write what I am learning.
Because I wanted to write about the eggs pictured in “Fragile Beginnings,” I had to organize my thoughts. I found out how little I knew, and what I did know was wrong.
I saw a Thrush fly out of the tall grass by the pond. Then I saw the nest and assumed it belonged to the Thrush. I snapped a picture and began to research Thrush on the internet.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any type of Thrush that resembled the bird I saw. So I did some more research and came up with some suspects. After a few more sightings, I knew the bird was a Brown Thrasher. So I wrote the post. There were no pictures I could find of Brown Thrasher eggs.
Today I was driving the ATV past a Gooseberry bush and a Brown Thrasher flew out of the middle of it. I realized she may have a nest, so I checked it out.
“Crap! This is what Brown Thrasher eggs look like.”
I returned and bothered the Brown Thrasher again and snapped a picture. Now I know that there are Brown Thrasher eggs on the internet.
