Nature in a suburban backyard
Just like seeing your own leave...
Aw, gee.So soon?
Lovely how you are keeping track of your wildlife. You really have some of the best photos of raccoons. Here there is a big problem with rabies in raccoons and fox so we have to be careful. I have fond memories of feeding them at our summer cabin when I was a child...Thanks for leaving me your web site.. Michelle
Looks like a healthy looking Robin baby!! We have some nesting on top of our house light too right now!
We have the good fortune to live on an island. Rabies is practically unknown here mainly due to the intensive efforts to limit its spread by the air drop of anti-rabies ‘bait’ by the northern states, and also in areas to the south and west of us by Canadian authorities. The few cases that have shown up over the past ten years have been pets which have been infected while the family had their pet at the country cottage. Most of the detected cases in this area have been bats. At one case a number of years ago was a wolf who had found his way across the winter ice.However, I have been unable to locate any information about the air drop vaccine program over the last two years. I only wonder if it’s still being done? I hope it has not fallen victim to another cost cutting attempt.
Hi RustyI have enjoyed catching up with the comings and goings of your fur and feathered friends.The last chick to leave certainly looks well fed...Are you in Canada Rusty?Happy days
Yes, Delwyn - near Montreal. I have not seen the baby robins since they left the nest but I know they are close by from the chattering of momma.
Update on momma robin. She is back on the nest! Starting a second family. Photos to follow.
