Russ and the bunny

To say "Russ and a bunny" in the same sentence is something we do almost daily as they drive him crazy.  This one got a little closer than normal...

 

Here you can see them in the same picture...

The Robins have flown the nest

The baby Robins left the nest for good last Tuesday from what I can tell.  Here are the last photos in the nest and one in the tree finding its way...

The Robins are getting bigger (NestCam update)

Looks like we have three babies in the nest.  The first two pictures were taken not quite a week before the last four and you can see how they are growing.

 





Nursing fawn

We've seen quite a few things out the back window since we moved here but the other day tops it for me (yes, even more than seeing my fox).  I was watching a doe move along the fence and here comes a fawn out to join its mom.  I've seen that many times before.  But then the fawn lunged under mom and started nursing.  So I quickly shot some video not thinking I could catch a good photo.  Quite a sight...the fawn was just wagging its tail.

Some type of tree frog

Here is a yet unidentified tree frog on our back slider door.


Robin update

I can't tell how many babies are in the nest.  I've only seen one head pop up.

Here is the mother and here is a baby looking to get fed...

Turkey Vultures

A common sight circling in the sky.  One of my favorite birds to watch in flight (along with Barn Swallows and American Goldfinch).  Maddy and Jake call them "lazy birds" because they don't flap their wings very often.

Not the clearest pictures, but unusual to see sitting on a house and certainly noticeable.
