I wasn't gonna add a critters page until the hens came along. But, the critters that are already here and the ones we encounter along the way deserve a shout out too.
The critters in our back Yard...
|Red Shafted Northern Flicker|
|Dont' get your panties in a wad - it was tearing up my food garden. They have 5 acres of woodland to be free and safe! Besides, we recycled it back to the earth.|
|Pacific Tree Frog makes her residence on our back deck.|
|this banana slug is 6" long|
|Possibly a Thamnophis ordinoides |
Northwestern garder snake
|little shrew - in my hand|
|the twins showed one morning up|
a few feet from the back porch
|rufous humming birds|
UPDATE: Previously thought to be Black-headed grosbeaks, this young family has been positively re-identified as White-crowned Sparrows. Living in the Rhododendron on the corner of the driveway.
|chicks just hatched!|
|chicks 6 days old.|
|One of the White-crowned Sparrow siblings 10days old.|
|Red-ear Slider Turtle|
These are critters that my hubby "captured" on his walk on the trail from River Legacy Park to Grand Prairie, in Arlington, Texas in May 2011.
