Lizard running around in the office. It has been in here for two weeks and nobody can catch the thing. LOL

Saw a Yellow throat male yesterday, lying on its side on a step. Left it as I did errands. Came back and it was sitting up as usual. Must have hit a window and been stunned.

I approached it slowly...it flew away.
Beautiful bird.

Saw a chipmunk stuffing leaves in his mouth. Nesting materials?? He bypassed a peanut I was offering.

Moved into my parents house ( they passed and we were renting it out). It has a bit of woods behind, no air condition and it was really hot so windows and slider doors were open. Stuff was everywhere as I was in the process of moving. I got up in the middle of the night and stumbled into propped up metal futon ends that fell over with a huge clang.

Something outside starting making a huge "alarm" (I guess) ruckus. I had no idea what it was other than suprisingly loud. Went on for quite awhile too. Stood out on the porch trying to figure out what it was but couldn't.

Turned out must have been the woodchuck I've since seen out there frequently. Lives under the neighbors shed.
I had no idea woodchucks could, or even would, make noise like that.

I have five game cameras out so that we can see the animals that visit. One spot on a trail had a black bear sow with three cubs, a fisher and a young bull moose in a 24 hour period. Is it alright to share pics or will that clog up the thread too much?

We put cat food in our greenhouse to feed our outside cat Rufus. We also have a monitor in the greenhouse that sends a signal to an inside alarm. Lately, it's been going off a bunch. Neighborhood cats have found the food, and not only that but a skunk has decided the pickings are pretty good around here. He's not shy either and we just back away slowly......


It may be time to shut the monitor off.

I would love to see pics, especially of the elusive fisher. Don't know how many would be too many.

He's on the camera often but I've seen him only once. I think he's responsible for the declining red squirrel and snowshoe hare populations.




This bull moose is probably two years old. He wandered through quite a few times during the height of mating season.


This wee one is eight months old. Black bear.
