Saturday's Critters!

It is feeling like fall, again. I woke to a bit of a surprise. Running out in my jammies and housecoat, I snagged a photo to show you. This morning it is -3 C., yesterday it was -4 C. in the a.m., with a serious layer of ice. The old heater is clearly not working. Out comes my back up. Cleaning out the ice, and draining the water, I covered it up and placed the working heated bird bath on top. We are good to go for winter!

 There is much action outside.

Oregano was back, just a blip on the camera!

The coyotes have suddenly been around. OF course the last one pees on camera.

The junco put on makeup for me!

This one was quite the capture.

The one coyote trotted down the driveway with something in its mouth. I'd noticed some blood near the end of the driveway, it was a bit strange!

Thanks to Eileen for hosting Saturday's Critters

I don't recall quite so much coyote visiting - do you think that has increased this year? I like their easy loping gait. YAM xx

OK, turkeys do walk with a majestic stride...but they sure could have done with the white feathers on their heads rather than all the wattles to get to be our national bird. Great Junco!

Hello Jenn :=) Super collection of videos. Pity the Barred Owl didn't stay longer. I wonder what the Coyote had in its mouth. It looked quite large to me! Loved the Junco caught on camera.
Have a great weekend.

Juncos always seem to be enjoying themselves.

I love your trail cam videos. The turkeys are neat to watch and the coyotes from a distance. I saw a coyote yesterday in the wild...saw it twice. Still gives you a bit of the creeps to see one ahead of you on the trail!

Lots and lots of animal action. Thank you.

The turkeys walk quite gracefully.

Thank you for sharing over this with us Jenn and for all you do to help the animals

A heated bird bath! Now I've heard everything. I didn't think birds would want to bathe in your freezing weather.

Your trail camera yields such fabulous images! And yes, fallish for sure!
