|Once the Eastern Screech Owl had moved out of the box it took less than a day for the house sparrows to take it over. Many birds have looked at it but these two work hard and fast to create a new home|
|Female was bringing in new nesting|
|Male was bringing in long leaves from next door|
|Female telling male to hurray up|
|More reeds brought in.|
The female is now on eggs and male sits beside his new house keeping others away.
I have no problem letting house sparrows use the nest box.
In October all the boxes will be emptied cleaned up and ready for another season.
I have seen lots of groundhogs this year but I noticed all of them had a bright reddish chest.
|Don't come near me.|
|a couple more|
|A lady had put out bananas for the groundhogs. This shot I wanted to show you the size difference.|
|One of my favourite shots.|
Doe and Fawn take a stroll through the neighbours yards.
So happy to see a fawn with mom.
How cute is this.
Remember if you find a fawn sleeping in the woods let it be. Mom is nearby.
If baby is following you, calling during the day or splayed out on the ground call
your local wildlife centre.

I love how this mom takes care of her baby.
She get food and the baby follows her
She goes to a tree and then feeds the little one.
Back and forth all day long.
They nested in my back yard in my wren nest. 2nd year in a row.
|young chick-a-dee wanting food|
|Mom taking a short rest|
|I was so excited to see the mink down by the lake. Even happier when the second one came out and gave chase to the first one.|
|Quite a bit darker - same place same time just a bit smaller and darker.|
|On the run as second mink chasing him.|
|Missed a step.|
