Birds are dumb in Idaho


This picture was submitted by a reader.
He wrote, "I spotted this at a rest stop in Ontario Oregon, the occupants of the car hadn't noticed it until I pointed it out, they stated that a flock of birds flew up in front of them about 100 miles back in Idaho, but that they thought they'd all missed."
Thanks, D M

Porcupine Dinner

For some it is a delicacy

PORCUPINE




Marinated Porcupine Chops

Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
6 Porcupine chops
3 Fingers coltsfoot salt
1 qt Maple sap
2 sm Wild onions
4 Wild leeks

Pour the sap in a birch bark container or other
non-metallic container. Cut up the onions into
small pieces and add to the sap. Place the
porcupine chops one at a time into the solution,
placing one wild leek between the chops.
Let stand overnight in a cool place. In the
morning grease the stone griddle with fat
and remove the chops from the marinade and
fry on the griddle. Serve on hot cornmeal cakes.

15 minutes. Remove,drain, and wipe dry.

Drop slices into boiling water for 1 minute.
Remove, drain, and cool.Remove thin membrane
from edges and all gristle and tubes. Wrap
each slice with a slice of bacon and broil for

the liver is relatively large. The liver is very

Road kill sighting on face book


These photos seen on face book last week got some interesting comments.

"These two turkey vultures were hungry. They dragged this road kill off to the side of the road, right in front of our home on Foothill. Cars driving by did not seem to bother them!!! They had the mess cleaned up in no time!! Thank you Turkey Vultures, for all the nasty work you do!!!"




"Only you would think to stop and thank this disgusting bird. :) They do a very important job though!"


"They do an important and amazing job. I am fascinated by how fast they can locate a fresh roadkill!!!"

"Nature at its best!!"

"Glad you like those "clean-up" birds doing their job for America!!!"

"One of my uncles claims that turkey vultures have within them the cure for cancer, to prove his point he says look at what they eat and thrive on!"


Rock on fellow road kill enthusiasts, Rock on!
Thanks for the submission.
