Robins, phoebe, porcupine, red-eyed vireo!

 I spotted the woodpecker in the dead elm tree. They began in Mid-April woodpecker 📹, and it seems to be a success. 

 The robins have hatched. Three little babies. Rather than bother them, I'll just show you my video: Baby robins (2017):

I was trying to use my BirdNET app, and I couldn't figure out this bird sound, until I saw it peeping. I was so surprised. robin 

Porcupine  came along and did some marking! I'm always happy to see them.


It's a lousy night video, so here is the real thing, in the daytime in 2012. 

 The Buck  stopped by. He's still growing, and a young 'un. It's a good sign of a healthy population.

We've many red-eyed vireo

There are some down beside the frogpond.  

The crows seem to be doing well. I've heard them, the odd time, as the adult tends to their food requirements and they scream for MORE!!!! I've yet to catch any sight of the nest as the crow flies. It's well-hidden.


The phoebes are doing well with their brood of 6, as well. They are madly catching bugs, bless 'em.


They are on day 6, and looking pretty much like this. This is from 2013.

Porcupines are fascinating critters.

With the vireo on your hand and feeling safe, you are truly Mother Nature.

I love seeing what has been past your camera traps, and find it really fascinating. Really like the Red-eyed Vireo.

One of the perks of living in the country area. Such a diversity of wildlife! I love the sound of your windchimes in the video of the baby robin cheeping. Enjoyed watching all your videos.
