For over 30 years the Flying Squirrels have visited our backyard Oak Trees to feast on the sunflower hearts and peanut butter that we have put out for them most every night. While their numbers always decrease as summer winds down they have always returned to the feast during the winter and in numbers by early spring. They do have to compete for the food we put out for them against the raccoons who always show up to devour most of the squirrel food. 2013 has been no exception.

January and February  brought one of our coldest and snowiest  winters to most of the country on record. The birds and the critters still survived and made the most of it. Peanut butter became a cherished favorite for many of the furred and feathered residents of our back yard as evidenced by this video slide show

October 2009 produced a bountiful White Oak acorn harvest  in our back yard and the deer love them.  I set the remote cameras up a few nights in late October and this is what the cameras caught

The 2008 Robin nest adventure was all set to be another successful hatch to Fledge story. But it was not to be. This one is a bit intense but gives a perspective of nature at its best and worst.

The February 20, 2008 Lunar Eclipse was spectacular in itself. An unexpected treat, was the vocal accompaniment  by a Hoot Owl duo seemingly hooting at the moon from the dark and cold winter bare trees. This video is the Lunar Eclipse Hootnanny.

The Hawk at the Window. Seems as if a hawk of some description, perhaps a Red Shouldered  , makes regular visits to the place where song birds accumulate, and the picking is easy.  The thought is not pretty as one may always feel the pain of the victim. It is the way of nature though and the way it has to be, unless of course there is such a thing as a vegetarian Raptor. This short video gives a perspective of a few minutes that this Hawk and myself shared one January Morning.

The Gray Squirrel verses HowPeg. A Gray squirrel feeling the call of Spring time family raising instincts is building a nest .  Problem is she is building it in a gutter and using fresh cut Holly branches from the shrubbery. This video chronicles a bit of the action adventure as it unfolded.

The Summer of 2007  produced the most Hummingbird numbers at our feeders than ever before. Guess they like it hot, hot, hot, because that is what this summer was here in Kentucky. The good news is that they afforded many picture and video opportunities. The  2007 Hummingbird Video provides a sampling

Most folks have never seen flying squirrels especially in the wild. But for those of us who have seen them it is a special experience. They are of course much more common and widespread than most realize but because they are noctournal are rarely seen. Fortunately they have been regular visitors at our home for many years . Included here in this space are a few of the flying squirrel videos  we have put together over the years.

Robin Hordes invade the Holly Berries

Most of us think of Robins as somewhat  solitary birds usually seen on green lawns in the Spring and Summer looking for worms and perhaps  watching three or four Robin Fledglings following the Male parent around learning how to fend for themselves. In the Winter it is a different story as they sometimes gather in great flocks and become ravenous feeders of berries. The Holly berries appear to be just right for them every February and this year was no exception. Here hundreds of hungry Robins  strip all of the berries in our neighborhood Hollies within minutes
