Winds of Change

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your cordial doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

It is FINALLY a typical March day! By that I mean it's not indistinguishable from winter. 

Our wonderful snow is almost gone. 

The sky completely changed in less than a half hour! 

There are processions of geese flying all the time now. Unlike the ditzy Autumn geese, who flew every which way, these flocks were all flying towards the northwest. Today we saw a flock of big white birds flying alongside the geese. They must have been swans. We couldn't get a picture of them, though. 

This is Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel reporting now. The wind is very strong today! 

My tail is a great weather vane! 


Wooohooo! That was a big gust! 

There have been lots of helicopters flying around today too. Usually we only see them about once in a while. Now it seems like they fly right over us every day and night!

We wonder what they're carrying.

And we hope they didn't bump into the geese!

We have to go in now. It's starting to rain.

Look Mom, no mud! 

Oh, I almost forgot. Look at who was on the front page of our Rochester newspaper: 

It's Disco the parakeet! We've been following Disco's videos for a long time and knew he lived somewhere in our area. If you don't know who Disco is, here is a video. 


We found a bit of information on the helicopters. Here's a link. 


  1. OMD, is that bird for real???? Too funny!!!

    We see lots of news helicopters fly over our yard but none like those.

    Hope you get some nice Spring weather soon.

  2. That is Wild Wind and a very talkative Bird...

  3. Is the helicopter blowing the wind and rain your way?

  4. Wow that is some wind and how cute is that bird. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. we were just thinking about all the snow melting and how squishy the ground is going to be once it does.

  6. Yay for no mud! Disco is a hoot ☺

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  8. Yes, we had some wet rain here in the morning, too...late in the afternoon the sun came out of hiding:)

    We also has lots of wind!

    The sandhill cranes were in the field across the street here this morning...strutting their stuff in the rain!

  9. Some buddy over there looks quite thrilled with the weather
