Where we can watch and relate to wildlife in a suburban backyard.
Saturday, April 24, 2010
This has been one of the warm spring days when I could sit outside very quietly in the shade waiting for the daytime critters to get within camera range. There were quite a few species I did not manage to photograph, but it’s a start. My friendly (?) squirrel seemed to be considering if she should check out my pockets. Having experienced those needle-like squirrel claws in the distant past made me a little wary of that idea.
Our favorite robin has returned and is building a nest once more in the same place. This one (I think) has a thing about constructing the nest over the spotlight. (The spotlight is turned off for the season). This is the forth consecutive year for this activity. What a chance for a video camera. That may be a project for next year. At present I don’t have the required equipment.
