Wild Ones

21 Apr

It’s not just my animals who live here.  I also enjoy seeing the wild ones we share the farm with.

Venus in back; killdeer in front

Although the killdeer wasn’t too happy when the goats got this close.

But s/he didn’t hop too far away from them.

This looks like a  young one.

a squirrel

The nuthatch was scurrying all around the tree.

I often see geese in the pasture in the spring.

Since they return to where they were raised, it makes me wonder if these are the ones who stayed with us for a while until they found their wings.

I hope so.

    Thanks for sharing this. I enjoy the killdeer, having grown up in an area where there were a lot of them. My daughter used to have a problem one of the years she was cutting asparagus when we lived in WA. The bird had her nest in one of the rows, and my daughter was startled by the bird numerous times!

    The nuthatch is a pretty little bird. That would be really neat if the geese that are showing up would be the ones who lived there briefly!

    I’ve always thought the squirrels in your area are really pretty.

    The Killdeer shots are great, it seems protective of that area. Maybe a nest nearby? Great variety of birds and photos. Take care, enjoy your day!
