There have been birds and squirrels a-plenty ever since the cats were re-located. We saw NONE the first several months after moving. Just the last month or so, we've been inundated with critters of all kinds. For today's Friday Finds, I thought I'd share some of the wildlife we've seen.
All in one day, I spotted some other cute critters.
And, while in the pool that same day, Pat fished out this tiny frog.
There've been tons of other critters out here. We've both spotted deer down the street, heard coyotes in the field behind the property, and watched fireflies in the early evening. As well, we're fighting and ongoing battle with armadillos (they're tearing up the yard.) As well, while in the pool one day, we watched a possum climb up a tree. This was after he took a tumble out of it. We've named him Giuseppe.
But, the cutest animals we're dealing with at the moment are these guys.

The picture above was them last week. As of this morning, they look like this.

I can't believe how much they change every day. It's startling and fun to watch. Pat's already started on a coop for them so we can move them out of the
hot chicks guest room soon. I'll share the progression of the coop once it's done. Told you I was a farm girl!
This is my first experience with chickens, and I'm still a bit nervous. So, if you have any advice. . .bring it!
I can't imagine we've seen all the animals that could be hiding out on the property, and I'm looking forward to finding more.
