The kittens discovered the bird bath - with a little help from Beep Beep.
Between the high winds and rain we've been having recently, it's been a while since my rounds have included all the perimeter of the spruce grove. The predicted storms have, once again, passed us by - this time to the south - but we have been getting rain almost constantly for the last while. Which … Continue reading Two more down
These photos were taken a couple of days apart.

My daughter removed this from the sun room. This is a Bald Faced Hornet. Which isn't actually a hornet, but a type of Yellow Jacket Wasp. Our Chinese Elm are just buzzing with these guys.

It's rare enough to get photos of norther flickers at our feeding station. Rarer still is getting one at the bird bath! On hot days, we would sometimes leave a block of ice to melt in the bird bath. The ice disappeared quickly, but the birds really appreciated having nice cool water to help beat … Continue reading Critter of the Day: cooling down
