Wildlife around your house

  1. Lately, there's been these high pitched noises coming from our back yard. Wailing and screaming and all kinds of commotion. Turns out, it was children! HEY! GET OFF MY LAWN YA DAMN KIDS!

    So many fecking seagulls up and down our street today. Cats nearly lost their shit. Nothing goes by 13th floor windows except snow and raindrops. Max was almost apoplectic and gave himself an asthma attack or three. Stupid things sound like kids screaming and always freak me out. I prefer *regular* sea gulls. Not these bullshit lake birds.

    Last night, around 11:50pm, I saw the owl sitting on a branch in one of the trees in our back yard. Phone photo, no editing. The owl is kind of hard to see, but it cooperated by staying put while I went in the house to grab my phone to take a few photos.

  9. Good news! My local animal karma has gone up today. Missed an opossum crossing the road early this morning. Lucky for us both, there was no one in the lane next to me and I easily swerved around him/her.

    Like these? They're more plentiful in town than in the real wilderness anymore. People feed them because they're so adorable and then they stop fending for themselves. Its created a form of chronic wasting among the population.

    So many birds.
    Sand crabs.
    Snails.
    Clams.
    Saw some dolphins the other day, too.
    It's fun spending time at the seashore.

    Not really near my house, but this is a large herd of elk crossing US 83 HWY in Western Nebraska a couple of days ago.

    They don't seem much bothered by the fences.;)

    Animals around our house..The birds (crows, jays, robins, hummingbirds, sparrows, eagles, hawks, etc.), skunks, racoons, cougars, black bears, coyotes, rats, squirrels, deer. I'm sure there are a ton more animals as we are pretty close to the mountain ranges but I can't think of any others I've seen recently.
