The starlings are engaging in a pre-roost routine that is usually only visible in a short how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar period before dusk as starlings gather after being dispersed during how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the day feeding in an area that can have covered how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar tens or even hundreds of square miles – they are engaging in a complex behaviour to select a how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar roost site and to determine where in the roost they how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar will spend the night. (where you sleep in a roost is important – in the middle of a tree is a good place how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar because it is warmed by the bodies of your neighbours how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar in the flock and it is much safer from nocturnal how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar predators, but being underneath other birds at night is not a how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar good idea because as they defecate, you will be covered in it and the next day how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar your flight ability will be harmed until you preen your how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar feathers to get rid of the mess. There is some evidence that in a roost, the stronger birds are those that seek out the more how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar exposed, colder positions higher up whilst the weaker ones have to how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar take the less desirable places lower down.

The flocking of gulls to feed on insects as they how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar emerge from the water (or as they fly in concentration for some other reason) is different, because here the birds are concentrated because of the presence how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar of an easily available food item – the insects. In britain, we rarely see such airborne behaviour from gulls, but it does happen. One of the most obvious times is on that one how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar day in summer when flying ants emerge … You can often see large numbers of gulls circling in how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar an active manner (sometime quite noisily, but often quietly) as they hunt the airborne insects. Of course, this is a different type of flying from the flat how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar winged circling that gulls do as they catch a thermal how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar up-current and use this to gain altitude so that they how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar can drift over large distances without using much flapping.

Yesterday my paddling partner and I brought our trusty folding how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar kayaks to lake assunpink nearby, a small but very pleasant body of water, somewhat shallow but usually teeming with wildlife. Beautiful sun-drenched warm day. Did two leisurely circuits, paddling almost to the large beaver dam that marks the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar far upstream end of the lake and holds back its how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar own, smaller lake farther upstream. All beaver were asleep in their at least 3 lodges, but we did encounter a swimming muskrat. The water was packed with nesting, breeding, fighting sunfish, each guarding a shallow nest of pebbles cleared of sand; very large leaping and swirling carp, also mating/fighting; and dense schools of killies. Swans with cygnets, great blue herons, a pied-billed grebe, many kingbirds. The spatterdock was in full bud, ready to bloom. A few turtles, including a large swimming snapper; some frogs (bullfrogs). The first decent day in weeks, and very welcome. We had a fine, relaxed day on the water, exchanging news and views, and marveling at the bounty of may on lake assunpink. Soon, we hope to switch to our hardshell kayaks and head how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar for barnegat bay, salt water, and tide.

Paddling partner john and I launched our hardshell (fiberglass/composite) kayaks from the canoe/kayak launch site at area 15 of island beach state how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar park. The waters of barnegat bay were crystal-clear, full sun through high cirrus clouds, a gentle 5 to 8 knot S wind, glorious temperature. We headed south along the IBSP shoreline into the wind, passing the osprey nests along the way, all of which were occupied by sitting birds, birds inspecting the nests, or mating birds. An occasional glossy ibis, oystercatchers, willets. We headed for the entrance to snake ditch, which penetrates the salt marsh and empties into barnegat inlet how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar itself. It was a hard push against both the wind and how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the now strong flooding tide, but we finally reached the inlet and ate a brief how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar lunch while looking across the inlet at barnegat light(house)–"old barney"–on the far shore. Lunch finished, we paddled out into the inlet and quickly picked up how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the flood tide as it raced into the bay, bearing us rapidly along as powerboats flashed by in both how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar directions, either heading out onto the atlantic or returning from being how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar outside. We zoomed along, reveling in the play of the waves and tide rips how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar while the shoreline passed rapidly by. We re-entered the quieter waters adjoining IBSP via one of the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar many channels that thread among the salt marsh islands offshore how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar from the park itself, scaring up 4 female red-breasted mergansers along the way; also a green heron, little blue heron, and a great egret. Spent another hour or so weaving through the marsh channels how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar on the still-rising tide, and then finally finishing up heading back to the area how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar 15 launch site with the wind at our backs helping how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar us along. None of the IBSP red foxes visible today, nor any diamondback terrapins. But it’s going to be a banner year for ospreys! First salt water trip of the year, gets a 10.

Long beach island: a wonderful thing indeed. From the national wildlife refuge at holgate to the NJ how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar state park at barnegat light and inlet–many happy memories. I launch several times a year at harvey cedars and how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar visit the inlet, or cross the bay to barnegat, or explore the old AT&T antenna farm in the marsh maze across the way. We used to spend a week or two on cedar how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar bonnet island when I was just a kid. With another paddler, I got marooned once on sandy island during a strong how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar december nor’easter, with 45-knot winds and the tide rising so high it covered how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the entire island–every square inch. We sought refuge in the old fishing shack on pilings how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar on the island, lucky to find the owner there also. I asked him how high the water had come in how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the past, while we were hunkered down inside, and he pointed to a discolored band along the wall how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar about another three feet above the level we were experiencing how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar that had already completely submerged the island. After a couple of hours, things calmed down enough so we could all get back how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar to harvey cedars. By the way, we kayakers were both dressed for the conditions–I with a thick wetsuit, and my partner with a drysuit, so we were secure against hypothermia or cold shock. But this was 23 years ago, and I don’t paddle in those conditions today.

Did a little SCUBA in my youth before there were how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar any rules or regulations: you just went to a dive shop, bought your gear, filled your tank, went diving. No certification, no insurance, no nothing. I just read a manual, and figured out what to get and how to do how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar it from that. Got married, other responsibilities, priorities. When, much later, I thought about getting back into it, I found it totally governed by rules, certification, etc., so I never went back. Did some caving here in nova caesarea back when also, but never combined the two interests. Bravo to you for your gumption!

We did not start our trip that ended on sandy how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar island with the idea of storm paddling–it’s not my thing. But the weather forecast turned out to be off by how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar about 8 hours, so we were overcome by events. We had launched in a dead calm at barnegat, crossed the bay to the inlet, and then found the wind suddenly increasing so powerfully that how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar a capsize from the pure force of the wind seemed how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar possible. So we ran with the wind at our backs directly how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar to sandy island, which was directly downwind from where we were, and abandoned the trip there. What a day!
