ANOTHER BIG BANG NIGHT WITH THE CAMERA TRAP – Marilyn Armstrong

There were 871 pictures on the chip this morning. I was sure half of them would just be the feeders swinging in the wind. I was wrong. There were pictures of flying squirrels and raccoons in every picture. Among the flying squirrel pictures, about 500 of them were squirrels glued to the sides of the … Continue reading ANOTHER BIG BANG NIGHT WITH THE CAMERA TRAP – Marilyn Armstrong

HAIRY WOODPECKER: THE ORIGINAL ANGRY BIRD – Marilyn Armstrong

They always look pissed off. Apparently, all the other birds think they really are pissed off because the moment one of them settles on a feeder, all the other birds fly away.

It's … Continue reading MORE FLYING SQUIRRELS – Marilyn Armstrong

FLYING SQUIRRELS AND BIG FURRY RACCOONS – Marilyn Armstrong

We knew we'd gotten a lot of pictures last night because a lot of food went missing. About 4 pounds of food from the big feeder and maybe another two from the smaller one. We moved the camera from the tripod and attached it to the wall of the house. It was actually designed for … Continue reading FLYING SQUIRRELS AND BIG FURRY RACCOONS – Marilyn Armstrong

A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO BE ISOLATED – Marilyn Armstrong

Something to Pass the Time While in Isolation Anyone want to sing along? Last night, they really started to clamp down. Apparently warning people wasn't doing the job. There are a lot of awfully selfish people. I'm sure that in the time of the Black Plague, these are the people who went dancing in the streets, … Continue reading A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO BE ISOLATED – Marilyn Armstrong
