Wild in the city
Remember the owls? The owls are still here! Yay! One morning I almost committed owlicide as I was pulling out of the driveway. One of the little darlings was sitting in a puddle of water at the end of the drive. I slammed on my brakes and he flew up into the tree. I was giddy with excitement because we hadn't seen them in a long time. I think they were in mourning for their brother/son who met his untimely death on the road.

So, one night last week after band practice, Brianna comes home and one of them is sitting on our porch! I KNOW! How cool is that? But it flies up into the tree so Brianna grabs her camera out of her purse (she IS her mother's daughter, you know) and starts snapping.

In addition to our owl family, we have beavers! Er..muskrats. Or, something that closely resembles one of those.

These pictures suck donkey butt so click 'em to big 'em. They open up REALLY big and I think you'll be able to better tell what they look like.
Look at that creepy face in the dirt pile!

Ok, now, someone tell me what those animals are. I need to know. My money is on the beavers. (My lord, I am going to get some crazy hits from talking about this!)

Moving on, as we headed back to the house from taking the beaver/muskrat photos, we saw this.

I think the animals are conspiring. They're up to something, I just don't know what it is.

    Glad you're still alive and kicking! Hate to bust your bubble but they look like groundhogs to me. Not great to have around since they burrow and will eat everything in the garden. Oh, and they don't taste very good from what I've been told.

    Welcome back girl!!!
    The owl photos are great! We have deer in the winter, an occasional owl in the spring and fall, and the usual assortment of chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits.
    We have seen three black snakes and one copperhead in the four years that we've lived on the edge of the hundred acre wood, but as long as they stay in the woods and we stay in the yard, I'm good with that.
    Again welcome back. I missed hearing from you.
