Newest game cam photos - BIG Porcupine!

Ok the above tree swallow photo is not from the game cameras but just could not help but add to this post—I just love watching these birds! They seem to put on airs like human husbands and wives!

This is one big porcupine, largest I have ever seen anyways! Looks like it was back again last evening by the photo below.

Action is with the turkeys this time of year and good to see and hear them in our area again! Calling, strutting and a lot of dramatics can be observed when wild turkeys are around.




Wild turkeys are early risers!

I don't think I would argue with this coon, he looks pretty tough!

A doe has started to check this spot out nightly now, this is the 3rd night in row the game camera captured a photo of her. I was surprised to see the little mouse running off (left hand side of picture).

Hope you enjoyed my latest game camera photos—stop by anytime and feel free to leave a comment below! :) Coppertop

Spring is in the air! Kestrels return!

How great it was today to be able to open a screen door/window and let some fresh Spring air into the house and to hear the birds singing!

The kestrels have returned again this year - time will tell where they decide to nest. The old Elm tree in the above photo they used last year is looking pretty bad and wonder how long it will continue to stand. I was only able to capture the female kestrel today, the male was being quite elusive. I really enjoyed watching them last year and getting to see the whole family after the babies hatched. Story and photos are posted at my July 2008 blog post which you can find here.

Below I have posted an assortment of the birds we are seeing in the backyard at this time. (Not all species we are seeing are represented)




Take a moment to look around you and enjoy! :) Coppertop
