how neat, we just have farm ponds near us
Nice pics catfishnut and JB
Nothing like those near us. Great pix!
Finally got in the woods a few days ago and noticed the stream back there is finally flowing again. Surprisingly this stream doesn't seem to have much wildlife in or around it. usually a small school of minnows hangs out in it, and thats about it... possible because it dries up before June.
We have a steam that only runs when it rains real hard or snow melts, sort of a runoff stream. I never go back to it, our woods are wild, a lot of trees have sort of fallen down with this winter. I can see big trees barely held up with little trees. Way to dangerous to go back there. We leave it for the wild life.
This for you JW.
Here's something you might not see any where but here. A snake eating a green iguana. I took this with my phone camera so it not great, but you'll get the picture.
So cute t-mann still remember you posting about your raccoon kids!
Survival of the fittest Priscilla lol
Awwwwwwww are these new pix Tmann or are these the kids from before? They sure did love those grapes
There is some wild animal on the couch right now!! I felt sorry for him cause he was getting covered in snow, so I let him in!!! Now he has taken over the couch!! And he has No Shame!!!
looks like a wild animal!
He is so relaxed and lovin it isn't he.........the big oof
Those are the ones from before.
Oh then you have no more babies................but you are prolly happy they aren't coming around messing things up but you have to admit they were cute
The ducks have returned! Every Spring since I've lived here a pair of ducks hang around for about a month. They walk around the yards in the area, sleep, eat at bird feeders... I'm not exactly sure why they stop here, and I'm not exactly sure why they only stay a month, but its cool to see them return.
They land now and then in our yard, but with the pond netted they have not stuck around. Nice picture jb
I took my 7 yr old to the wetlands yesterday. Didn't see a whole lot going on as it was later in the afternoon, but, we did see a Kingfisher. Brayden thought that was pretty cool, we had a pair of Binoculars so he could see him pretty good when he would dive into the water and bring up a fish. We also saw a few beavers, busy rebuilding after the downpours we've been having.
If you (or anyone) are ever in Wisconsin, the Horicon Marsh is the place to be. Miles and miles of marsh and hundreds of thousands of birds use it throughout the year. I went in a bad time, mid-summer, drought conditions, and still saw a bunch of wildlife. Here's a handful of photos from my day at the marsh in 2012.
Looks like a neat place JB w/ lots of critters. Those are the kinds of places I like to stop at when traveling in our camper.
It really is a neat place. A very popular place with nature enthusiasts and a great place for a family to spend a day, although in a day you can only see a fraction of the 32,000 acres. When I was there I walked a trail on the south edge and then drove to the north edge to walk a boardwalk trail. There's tons of stuff in between too that I never got to see. I want to bring my canoe there someday.
