Backyard Wildlife


Momentarily frightening away the birds, the wild gerbil refreshes himself at the miraculous cistern.

  2. Your yard is amazing. Amazing!

    We kill everything we plant either directly or indirectly. Either way, it's going down.

    Lots of critters like these are real cute-like -- until they start eating everything in sight. Being more or less in a rural area (a horse pasture borders our proerty, and farmers a block away have cows), wildlife is not so much a novelty, but a daily delight (five different species of woodpeckers, sandhill cranes, grosbeaks, catbirds, hawks, indigo buntings, phoebes, etc). The chipmunks, though, moved past the "delight" stage very quickly -- I planted 75 strawberries last year, and this year was to be the first big crop. I've been watching all the berries form for weeks now. And then, in a span of two days, all gone -- all eaten by chipmunks. Curses, curses!

    OK, Terry - now having seen your latest post, I see now that the "wild gerbil" probably has a little tag with washing instructions attached to it. I'm gullible...here I thought you had a chipmunk or some such critter!
