Re:


Carolina Wren - This is not a good picture but I finally got a picture of this bird. I thought it was a wren of some sort, but couldn't get a close look at it. I assume it has a nest near here. Wrens once nested on my porch, but I took down the place they nested. They got really nasty with the birds who wanted to eat and I didn't only want wrens. I had house wrens before.

Re: Birds at my house; things outside


Oh poor Bunny! I hope he heals well. Should, it is a wild bunny. But it has lots of good food, that helps it not be so stressed.

Love the [sign in to see URL] are great shots!

AND that chipmunk is beyond adorable

BUT you gotta send that "squirrel proof" photo to that company! emoticon

I'm glad that the feeder is doing what you [sign in to see URL] down the raccoons but letting the squirrels eat.
HOW RUDE of that squirrel to poop on your stuff! emoticon

Carolina Wren - I fear this woman may have made a nest on my porch. I hope not because once babies hatch the mother chases the other birds away. I can't reach the thing where the nest may be, but it was me who put it up there years ago, for nests. If there are no eggs there, yet, I would like to take it down.

Re: Birds at my house; things outside


Oh Susan it's too bad those Wrens are so aggressive in protecting their wee ones. Cause they have one of the most beauitful songs.
But they are very protective! I hope there are no eggs.

That Bunny is not the same one with the boo boo ear, it looks healthy. So very cute.

That "squirrel proof" feeder cracks me up!
[sign in to see URL] just had a thought! What if that squirrel gets in there and eats so much, he gets fat and can not come back out?? emoticon

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
