We've been having all sorts of birds stop by the feeders lately, so yesterday, I grabbed the camera, sat in my chair by the window, and snapped a bunch of shots. Here are a few...
Finally, because we love her so, here's Mama Boom. She's a fox squirrel who's been hanging around a lot lately. Something happened to her tail and she's only got half of it now. She's so big, so looks like a groundhog when she's running across the lawn. And with her short tail, she looks like a prairie dog when she sits up.
Most likely, Mama Boom has babies around here somewhere. I hope so. We need more fox squirrels to run off the gray squirrels. (Fox squirrels are awesome. Gray squirrels are furry-tailed rats.)
Hope you enjoyed the photos. Have a great day!
All the things!!! You have such a crazy-cool variety of birds and critters. I hear the birds more than I see them despite the feeder being outside my office window. Lots of sparrows, the occasional cardinal. I get doves, crows, and starlings out in the driveway when I toss leftover dog food out there, though now I'm scattering bird seed for the doves since they are basically ground feeders. They'll use the flat feeder in the back but I suspect they like the driveway better.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the big smile this morning. I'll just have to "bird" vicariously through you. 😉
Have a great week!
I love your birds! And I'm fond of Mama Boom, too.ReplyDelete
I need to figure out what kind of squirrels live around here. They're gray with orange bellies. And the sweetest eyes!
