The quiet panorama on the sunrise side of the farm: an awesome view of Mount Malaráyat and the river below the gap.

December Bird of the Month

The Brown Shrike, commonly called Tarăt but in our area, it is known as Pákiskis. It has become more visible and audible lately; a rowdy and noisy bird, and can be quite aggressive. We like it though, since it eats a lot of the insects, even the large ones that are scattered in the farm and the gardens. It's usually conspicuous because of its chatter, especially when there's a group of them late mornings or just when we're about to have our afternoon siesta when they break the quiet, laid-back mood.
