A New Back Yard Visitor

I have seen black squirrels before, but I had never seen one in our back yard until today.

The black squirrel was helping itself to the bird seed that falls to the ground from our bird feeder.

All of a sudden a loud roar was heard coming up our driveway.

The loud roar was Bob coming home from work, riding his motorcycle.  The squirrel skedaddled across the back yard and up a tree soon after I took this picture.

Valerie’s Backyard Critters

As mentioned here a few backyard critters visited Valerie and I, while we chatted on her deck this past Tuesday.

Gray Squirrel

The gray squirrel paused only momentarily before deciding it was safe to come up on the deck.

The baffle provided a good perch for the gray squirrel to reach the bird feeder.

Red Squirrel

The appearance of the red squirrel surprised me. I had heard that red squirrels chased away gray squirrels. These two have lived in close proximity for some time now, according to Valerie.

Chipmunk

 

I didn’t mind sharing the deck with the squirrels and chipmunk.

This wasp, however, was not a welcome visitor!

Back Yard Guests

I haven’t gotten much done around the house the past few days because I have been watching the wildlife in our back yard!

Downy Woodpecker

Male Cardinal

Yesterday this squirrel was content to eat bird seed that had fallen to the ground. Today Mr. Squirrel decided he’d have better pickings, if he ate from the bird feeder!

Bird in Flight and a Squirrel

It seems I was doing a similar thing as a fellow blogger today, sitting outside as still as could be, in the hopes of capturing photographs of wildlife. I was multitasking. As I waited for that perfect photo opportunity, I was listening to my newest audio book — Jodi Picoult’s “Salem Falls”. I listened to several chapters of that audio book before my perseverance paid off.

A Squirrel in our Neighbor’s Tree

My fellow blogger’s perseverance paid off as well; she captured the photograph of a blue jay.
