Wow the sun finally came out and my little forest is busy. Chuck and Lily the mallard ducks just returned (yay) Its been 3 years of visits. I am getting visits from Band tailed Pigeons aka Bandit and part of their family, they are cooing , it’s very similar to the dove but a deeper sound. Speaking of the dove they are courting too 🙂 The frogs are in the ponds and I still have one with a broken sounding croak.
I also seem to have 2 bunnies, I have seen them from time to time but now everyday at feeding time and in my yard. They seem to have made a burrough below my spruce shrub so I might get babies !!!
And now not only do we have the Coopers Hawk, but now a red-tailed hawk and a pair of Bald Eagles ! I can’t believe that all this activity is happening in such a small area, but its a lot of fun.
Yesterday we saw Buster the douglas squirrel climb into the bird house that’s high on the side of the shed, now considered the maternity ward. It’s a heck of a jump to get down so I assume she will move one at a time again after they’re born, well see.
I don’t have any pictures yet because I am addicted to watching April the giraffe 🙂 have her baby, How cool would that be to visit animal adventure park, but I seem to have a park of my own just wild 🙂 It’s interesting to me that my wild visitors get this close and that they continue to return but its always hard when they don’t .
Hope everyone has a good day,
