Re: Birds at my house; things outside


baby Possum (O'Possum for fancier people) Possums, without the O, live in Australia.

This morning I thought I saw a big rat by the propane tank. It turned out to be a baby possum.

quote:

Female opossums often give birth to very large numbers of young, most of which fail to attach to a teat, although as many as thirteen young can attach, and therefore survive, depending on species. The young are weaned between 70 and 125 days, when they detach from the teat and leave the pouch. The opossum lifespan is unusually short for a mammal of its size, usually only two to four years.

Opossums are usually solitary and nomadic, staying in one area as long as food and water are easily available. Some families will group together in ready-made burrows or even under houses. Though they will temporarily occupy abandoned burrows, they do not dig or put much effort into building their own. As nocturnal animals, they favor dark, secure areas. These areas may be below ground or above.

When threatened or harmed, they will "play possum", mimicking the appearance and smell of a sick or dead animal. This physiological response is involuntary (like fainting), rather than a conscious act. In the case of baby opossums, however, the brain does not always react this way at the appropriate moment, and therefore they often fail to "play dead" when threatened. When an opossum is "playing possum", the animal's lips are drawn back, the teeth are bared, saliva foams around the mouth, the eyes close or half-close, and a foul-smelling fluid is secreted from the anal glands. The stiff, curled form can be prodded, turned over, and even carried away without reaction. The animal will typically regain consciousness after a period of a few minutes to four hours, a process that begins with slight twitching of the ears. - Wikipedia

Re: Re:


More nice pictures of the pileated woodpecker, Susa!

A few weeks ago when we were babysitting for Arvind and Kiran, Arvind said that he saw a bird outside, and he thought it was a pileated woodpecker! He really knows his birds and other animals.

(I didn't see the bird, but I have never seen a pilieated woodpecker around here. Maybe, he saw the red, and it was actually a cardinal.)

[sign in to see URL] also saw a fox in our backyard about a month ago! I told that to Arvind, and he said that it was probably a red fox because that is the kind that is usually found in Ohio.

He is like a walking encyclopedia!

Re:


I feared that people would think I was crazy for focusing on things like this. I went out to find a honey bee, but found an ant. This ant would be like me carrying a 3 or 4 hundred pound man.

I think the honey bees must have gotten all nectar out of the patch of clover the day before.

[sign in to see URL] ARE crazy. But that is beside the point! emoticon
There are photographers on ViewBug that specialize in wee insects. It's amazing what they can see!

I find ants incredibly [sign in to see URL] are VERY strong. Annoying, [sign in to see URL] when they get inside the home. But amazing none the less. emoticon

I don't [sign in to see URL] they must think. I mean most insects, especially ants and bees, can figure out different ways of doing things, if a problem arises. emoticon

How do I post images? Do I need to upload them on Photobucket first?

Yes! You need to upload to Photobucket and then paste the image code in the reply box here. If you have any problems, I would be most happy to talk you through.

Thank you for liking my pictures.
