Evening sky~and visits..

Howdee all,

Last evening before sunset… on my short fifty foot long walk home from my Sickstas I saw a Summer Tanager. Yippeeeeee

One more of the critters that we see every spring time here…Around Sickstas_062The Whip-poor-will is back and has been calling every night..

It hasn’t come around to the house yet…it usually does a circuit and part of that circuit is their front porch and the roof of their house near our Homey…still waiting for that.

Around Sickstas_063A pair of Flying Squirrels have been visiting our bird feeder in the evening…

Cute little things…scampering up and down to get to the feeder that is attached to the tree near our bedroom window. Ballie gets excited when they visit and he tries to catch them by jumping onto the window glass.

The same feeder hosted a Raccoon last week…I haven't seen it since.

Around Sickstas_064

The other night we heard murderous screams in the middle of the night…Jeff tried to find out what was going on,but saw nothing. Some poor animal probably met its demise….

Always something going on here…I am looking forward to more spring migrants…

Bring em on!

Oh..and I wouldn’t mind a Morel mushroom or two :)

    We had Northern Flying Squirrels coming to a feeder at night and I could never figure out how to get a photograph.

  7. That comment from h above is actually me but I can't figure how to operate things from a laptop LOL

  8. Beautiful photographs. I love the night sounds too, until the dratted katydids come and drown out the other noises.

  9. Whenever i took the photo in the evening it will look more beautiful than the other time. I like dark.

  10. Dawn - really lovely photos! We had a Whip-poor-will calling in our neighborhood 2 nights ago, the first we have ever heard here.

    Good Birding!
