Feeding during the drought. 6 Replies

Most of us, if not all of us have bird seed feeders, hummingbird nectar feeders and possibly even squirrel seed/corn feeders.  But, where does that leave many of our insect and "meat eaters?"  With…Continue

this possum has decided to set up his home in my little house on top of my arbor....this is his second time here.  we took him about 2 miles away and we don't know if it is the same one or not but how odd that two possums would find this little house in my small back yard.  he is quite content.

Sharon your Red Squirrel is really cute compared to the one we call a Red Fox Squirrel. I love the Chipmunks but I only saw one here and that was in the house. The cats and dogs just looked at it while it was eating there food. I went out and got a livre trap and when I got home, they had evidently gotten tired of looking at it because it was in the dogs yard dead. Right now we have hundreds if not thousands of Eagles here in Henderson County. Here are some of the pictures I took yesterday.American White Pelican and a Canadian Goose with a fishMallard Ducks in flightEagle catching a fish
