We didn’t encounter all that much wildlife at our townhouse, really. But, oh boy, since we’ve moved to this spread-out subdivision with tons of trees, we’re seeing all sorts of stuff. First of all, there are like a billion squirrels. They run around the yard, sometimes they chase each other, sometimes they are hunting for or eating acorns (which is so cute). Here’s one of them in action up on the grill on the deck:
But oh, that is not all… we also have these cute little husky birds that sit on the firewood pile that is out on our deck. They tweet excessively as well. After some research, we believe they are some kind of wren, probably a winter wren. Which, has me worried that they will be flying back up north as soon as the weather warms up. I guess we’ll see.
Apparently even NC is cold for the wrens.. because at some point, they found a way into our garage (OK, that’s not that hard for a teeny little bird considering there’s a hole in one of the doors) and decided to make a nest in our rag box. Then, every time we’d go to the slop sink they’d freak out and fly away. Oak managed to catch them in action one night:
Look all the way to the background and you will see our friend “Sir Fluffikins.” We have to figure out what kind of house he enjoys so we can buy or build him one soon!
