Freezing Foggy Morning

Its cold out and Hummer is still refusing to share……I use Christmas lights to help keep the food from freezing and he is hogging all three !!!! I even took down one so the little female could have a chance to eat and that did not go over well with him haha  little stinker hovers at my face giving me a what for !! He has to keep flying around in order to guard all three since I have them placed to share. good grief 🙂


Buster is not sharing either, those little douglas squirrels are funny,  I put the peanuts in to holders and today while “Tippy” was already inside, the one I call double T jumped in and the fight was on. I had to go and let the poor guy out. I am beginning to see my little nature buddies do not like to share.

It was a big night for Wiley Coyote seems him and his pack had a party in the back yard last night, tracks are everywhere but I am not sure what they got.  This pack is getting big and they are so limited on their territory but that’s really close. They are showing reports nearby of activity in neighborhoods and a little girl was bitten while on the porch hanging christmas lights and its only going to continue.   But the building and wiping out small pieces of forests just continues. I seriously think we can do much better than this.

waiting for the sun to burn off this fog…………………………




Hey Woody !

Wow, it’s getting very tough for Woody and Momma to come down. That Coopers Hawk aka Sneaky Pete is really really sneaky !!!!! I have caught him sneaking low in the tree right at the break of dawn,  I limit feeding and have moved times but he is very patient hunter, grrrrr.   This weekend was again so wet that good pictures were hard to come by, Buster and family seem to be a target of Cooper also so I am getting frustrated, I know its part of the circle of life but he can eat elsewhere.

Lets not forget yesterday, while I was snooping on Cooper we got a visit again from Wiley coyote, ugh   He is so pretty but I scared him good this time haha, he didn’t see me so it felt great .   Still it happens in mid day so I still have to always be outside with the dogs for potty breaks.

Rocky Racoon and company also came in for apparently a nice dip in the pond, not just one but both ponds were tested,  Rocky even climbed up onto the waterfall and proceeded to just roll with it.  I can’t believe the whole thing didn’t fall.

Hummer……just wont share! I have 3 feeders out and hummer is my resident Anna’s hummingbird,  H2 showed up last year, one stays on the left tree and one on the right. They each have a mate but spend the whole day chasing each other off the feeders,  quite a site and when you go outside you get what we call “buzzed”  as they fly by,  thank goodness we wear glasses because its gonna hurt if they hit us.

Cold and Fog weather now so keeping the suet and hummingbird food out is important. Remember, if you had fires, floods, etc.  in your area this past summer the food supplies for nature animals was also destroyed, so any help we can give will make a difference.
