    Ok so I've been very blessed by the fact that all my neighbors are family, ie. Mom and Dad , Uncle and Aunt, cousins, so on and so forth, anyway we all basically share a rather large yard that covers several acres, real bitch to mow, but I digress, my mother has always had this uncanny ability to convince wild animals that they were , in fact domesticated, be it feral cats or small woodland creatures. Recently she have several baby chipmunks show up in her back yard where she has several feeders for the birds and squirrels and such. Well as these cute little furrys have grown she has one thinking it's a pet I reckon. Here's a pic of it eating out of her hand in her kitchen, where it shows up daily and where this has become their routine....... 1508461729095_920734520_02d8cd26.jpg 1508461729095_920734520_02d8cd26.jpg

    Mr. Big Turtle is back and last night she was looking for Xray because she knows he will feed her bread he brings to feed the fish. Big Turtle is so tame we wonder if she was a pet someone left behind, dumped into the canal.

    Ok so my mom's yard drops down into a rather large field and there are critters every where out there. This hawk was sitting on the power line when it spotted some kind of rodent and He must have been hungry lol.... 1508696325220_7698478893_02d8cd26.jpg 1508696325219_6591661891_02d8cd26.jpg My mom loves taking pictures of the critters around her place so I'll have alot more to post as soon as she sends me the pics, as I mentioned in a previous post we are next door neighbors and we more or less share a large yard so her critters are my critters too , lol !!! I'm glad she has such an awesome camera as well as a great eye!!!

    We have some interesting ways to attract and feed the squirrels around the house, here's a couple of shots of one or two of them...... 1508697853941_7916484777_02d8cd26.jpg 1508697853939_445019858_02d8cd26.jpg the first one is pretty self explanatory, a jar of peanut butter secured to a tree. The second one is one of our favorites , as well as the squirrels favorites, we cut the bottom off of a coconut and screw a loop hook into the the top of it, and hang it from a tree limb. The squirrels will clean one out in no time, and they really do get ever little bit of the meat out of one.

    This was a bit further than my camera can resolve, but there's a nice bit when a raptor gets a fish. I wonder if anyone -gzb? - is able to tell if this is a hawk or osprey ? This is the Caloosahatchee river in Southwest Florida. I can see it out my kitchen window.

    I think you're correct ded i. Looks like a typical Osprey snack attack.

    The brackish parts of the Caloosahatchee River are full of Mullet (among other things) and that's the fish you see jumping.
    Mullet are also a favorite food of coastal ospreys. These oily fleshed fish swim close to the surface and get picked off fairly easily by the Fish Hawks.
    Nesting season is just about over down there, but the little ones are still dependent on the parents for food. They demand a fairly constant daisy chain of deliveries from both before they fledge. Makes for good entertainment out the window if you're fortunate enough to live nearby.

    Those Mullet are also a favorite food of Snook and Tarpon which prowl the Mangrove shorelines. Great gamefish that in turn attract a lot of fishing folks...

    ETA: That stretch of river also is an important nursery for the rare and endangered Smalltooth Sawfish. They're working the bottom, terrorizing the poor Mullet from below :



    Ain't living in Florida great... ?

    Well fellow devils it's spring again and everything is in full bloom here in the mountains! I got a couple of pic of my front yard the other day I thought I would share with everybody. The tree in the middle is a Japanese maple that my mom planted a few years ago. The bushes in the background are "burning bushes", in the fall they change colors until the too are as red as the maple. Anyway, here's the pics.....

    Well the "pic" anyway. I'm being told the other two are to big and I don't know how to fix it. I'm just glad One of the uploaded! Lol!

    These little owls are common here. This one has babies and I've been riding my bike to the burrow to see the baby owls but I can't get a photo yet because they run down into the burrow when anyone gets close.

    Ok peeps please allow me to introduce a couple of squatters I recently had the pleasure of meeting :D
    The first pic is a lunar moth my daughter holding, and the second is another type of moth I found hanging out next to my front door. Not sure what kind of moth he/she is but he/she loved the camera!!!

    I haven't seen the yellow-bellied sliders at the bridge for months but went there this afternoon with Xrayzebra and Mr. Big Turtle and Little Turtle were there and it was really nice to see them.

    I recently ran across a youtub vid of a little green heron using a piece of bread for bait. It made me think about you and your "pets". Glad to see they survived the Winter.

    I was too, thank you, crogers. Little Green Heron flew to the bridge the minute we arrived, he squawked once and went to the edge of the water and we threw breadcrumbs to the fish and he got a bunch of little fishes. Honestly we were amazed the critters remembered us.
