Critters at the Patch

1 Oct

It’s always interesting to see who shows up at the pumpkin patch.  Today I had a red-bellied woodpecker playing hide and seek with me.  Seriously.  I finally managed to get a decent shot.


There were a half dozen vultures circling overhead for a little bit.  It kind of made me nervous.  Then there’s the beautiful garden spider with the web by the building.


Of course, Cutie and Strawberry are there.  Everyone keeps asking me about Cutie’s wattles.  I like to tell them that they’re just goatie jewelry.  Silly Ava and Charlie sneaked out of the yard and went out to pasture before I got them up there.

Then there’s this little cutie that showed up.  We are guessing we might have found the guilty party who was eating the Indian corn at night.


I put the started ears out tonight, so hopefully, he won’t start on any new ones.

    That chipmunk sure is cute! I will always remember that Iowa was the first place I ever heard the term “squinny” (squinnie?) for chipmunks. I have to remember not to use it here because nobody knows what the heck I’m talking about!

    😊 Ha ha! I’ve never heard that! Pretty funny! Whatever you want to call them, they’re adorable! We loved the little one we raised as a pet when I was a kid.

    Cute little corn thief! I had a Red-bellied Woodpecker as an escort at the botanical garden. Chatty fellow, must have been the messenger who ratted out all the visitors.
