Wild Wednesday ....
What an incredible array of wildlife we have in our own backyard!!!
I think you probably all know the usual suspects that are regularily featured in my Wild Wednesday collages. But just in case .....
Top left: This mallard drake is a yearly visitor to our yard. He usually shows up in the spring with another drake and a hen. We only occasionally see the hen but the two drakes love hanging out on the winter pool cover.
Clockwise from top center: Northern Cardinal, Common Grackle, Eastern Gray Squirrel (shoving in the peanuts two at a time!), Gray Catbird (I haven't been able to get a decent shot of these summer visitors yet!), and a male Downy Woodpecker.
We feel so blessed to have all these wonderful critters living here near us!
I have backblipped a road trip from this past Saturday .... please have a look if you have time. Thank you!
I have just notice that this is my 3,200th entry! Not a special blipday ... but WOW!
