Wildlife


There has been quite a lot of wildlife in our last few days. We saw all of these guys above just in one afternoon. We had lots of fun at a local farm and lake. There were so many silly animals at the farm, including a dog the size of a horse...yet i somehow managed not to get a shot of him. There were tiny baby bunnies lining the road to the lake....baby birds(bottom middle left)running in the grass...big giant bees in the flowers. Pretty stuff!

Then there was this little guy. Doesn't he look angry? If i were him i would be too. He is just a little baby, and i think if he survives the night in our yard we are going to try to take him to the local wildlife center. He was hand raised and fed by a neighbor and then released in the last few days. Today he turned up in our yard....hungry and lonely. He is obviously used to people. He cheeped and peeped and then would stand in your hand. uh oh! Avery brought out some of our fishing worms for him, he was very grateful and knew just what to do.

We knew we were in trouble when Fluffy Muffy(we kind of named him/her) decided to join us for dinner at the picnic table. At first he peeped at us from a distance then before we knew it he was sitting in Mitchel's chair with him....then in Avery's....and then he hopped right up onto my shoulder. He thinks he is a parrot! We could not keep him away...every time we moved him he came right back. I hope he makes it through the night so we can take him to someone that knows what they are doing.

Oh what a cute baby! Hope he makes it safely! He did look quite upset in the first picture!

Hey, bird lady... I think this guy knows a good home when he sees it. I love the shot of him on your shoulder!

Oh so very cute! On the day he learns to really fly you will miss him!
We saw a deer yesterday on our little island. The dog spotted him up the back of our property.
I think after he finishes raiding all the hostas on the island he'll move on.
Very well done photos Leslie!
PS...the word verification was "robilia" close to robin heh?

Oh my, the poor little guy! Did he make it? The kids must have loved having him to dinner! The 3 pics of Fluffy Muffy are impressive.

How does Dee feel about your baby bird? :)

That's cute, how often do you get to have a little birdy like that sit on your shoulder... maybe an outdoor pet opportunity? :)
