This is something that does not happen every day. The javelina hung around the house for quite a while eating cow tongue prickly pear just outside my back yard fence. Several javelina look directly at my camera and me! I hope you enjoy the video!

Some of the older javelina probably told the young'uns that you are a Movie Director/Producer. They want to be in the movies, like the Roadrunner & Speedy Gonzales...

A water bucket will attract the javelina.

Oh yeah, I remember Speedy Gonzalez, loved that cartoon! Yes, just like everyone else, the young javelina want to be on social media! ;-) The javelina are around my house a lot as we are on one of their trails. Usually, I do not believe in interfering with wildlife, but we have been so short on rain, I did not figure a bucket of water would hurt. We definitely do not feed the javelina, but we know that some people do.

Cute. A friend of mine lives in Sun City and he sends me photos of bob cats and coyotes wandering his neighborhood.

Thanks bonni0827! Yes, we have those too! If you look on my channel, you can find those as well. This particular video was kind of different with them coming to the door and all! Thanks for watching!

I understand. I have a bass pond where all the wildlife come to drink.
Sometimes Bald Eagle, Osprey, Great Blue Heron take a few fish. Such is the way of nature...

They really are cute -- I love when they turn their heads and look right at you. Just chillin' at Bart's. Love watching them just hanging out like family -- very calming and some funny little moments. Nice music, too!

Not everyone would agree that they are cute, but I sure do! I also like it when they look right at me, then go about their business like I am not there. You saw some of the youngsters kind of chewing on each other, that is like family too. Mom!!! Jason is touching me!!! Glad you liked the music, I spent a couple of hours looking for just the right fit for the video!!!

That is cool Hawk J! Oh, I would love to see some of those birds. Thankfully, I get to see raptors on a pretty regular basis, but not the ones you mentioned!!!

I dunno. I'd say you got more than 3 of 'em, though!

They've got you trained for water and browse. You might be able to claim them on next year's income taxes! LOL!
