This is Part Three of the five-part series showcasing my former supervisor W. H. Patton’s photography. The original post is here. Last Saturday’s post is here.

The above picture (on a phone) or the picture to the left (on a PC) is from the Texas Lone Star Wind Farm just outside of Abilene (northeast) and Clyde (northwest). On one of my visits to his ranch in Clyde, he took me out to this wind farm installation. Those wind turbines make the weirdest noises.

I wish I had remembered MY camera.

Round Three below.

    its crazy, for how delicate birds are, they sure do thrive!

      Yeah! Even the littlest ones. We have dozens of Carolina Wrens and they nest anywhere, even in the mailbox if we don’t close the lid. They will probably try to nest in my wreath like they did last year.

    They’re all so good but the raccoons is my favorite. I love the disrespectful little ninja antichrists. They remind me of me!

      They are cute bandits. And, they LOVE cat food.

        I know! We had one that used to eat with our barn cats at our old house. He was a huge bugger, I called him Big Chief Half-an-Ear for obvious reasons! He was as regular as clockwork, I miss him a lot

          Did he die or did you just move away? Did the barn cats come with you?

            I guess he died because he stopped coming to visit. We had a nasty virus go through and decimate our barn cat population the winter before we moved. There were only four left and the Amish who bought our house kept them. They were pretty feral, they wouldn’t have adapted.

              How sad…

                I know. We had a goose who stayed all winter because his mate got shot, he broke my heart every day. When he finally either got shot or caught by a fox/coyotes I missed him horribly. I get overly attached to wild animals but I don’t want to change

                  The Hinoeuma responded:

                  I know. You just want to love on them. But, nature can be harsh.

    The “bandits” were obviously washing (their) food. LoL
    You said the weirdest noise was coming from the wind generators? Was it a whoop whoop whoop type sound?

      The Hinoeuma responded:
      December 9, 2018 at 1:07 am

      It was a combination of two sounds…a ‘whoosh’ noise from the blades and this weird, low grade hum from the metal turning? Words are clunky. You have to hear it/feel it in person.

      I can tell you that I wouldn’t want to be around it on a regular basis.

        I haven’t heard the sound for myself, but I will agree, sounds (waves) can have adverse effects of people. They can have healing properties, BUT also disruptive ones too.

      They are too cute. Thanks for stopping by!
