    my company gives out safety awards for each year of safe driving. prizes get better per year for continuous safe drive.  one driver chose a 55 inch tv....

    for me , year 2 award I ordered a trailcam. have some critter(mole I think) digging near the house.

    hope to catch a pic once the cam is up and running. need batteries and just ordered a little solar panel from amazon for it.

    This looks like heaven to me!  Lots of green, clouds in the sky, beautiful docile animals, deciduous forest.  Perfect!

    Hard to tell from the photo, but that woodpecker is at least 2 ft. tall.

    Yup, showed up one day and made that nest for a bunch of smaller ones.  Have not seen it since.

    If you use safflower seed the squirrels kind of don't like it and may not ravage your feeders so much. We have chipmunks that take everything they can. Squirrels too. 


  • I spotted this little fella near the end of the garden and I was worried he might be injured, but fortunately he was fine.

    I saw one of them in Sequoia. I had only seen the smaller ones here in the East coast.

    Put hot stuff on it and they won't eat it.

    Birds Like hot, squirrels do not.

    We saw these Canada geese adults with their chicks at Lake Tabeaud in Amador County yesterday.  A perfect outing day!

    Found a horseshoe crab washed up along the beach where I live. I always see if they are alive and help them back in the water. 

    Any who, this one was tagged. I’ve never seen a tagged one before. I took the pic, went to the website and filled out the info. 

    They sent me a certificate, pin and literature. I was pretty excited about the whole thing. 

    It took it 6 years to get to this point, lol.

    And here’s mom
