Animals in the yard

I 've been adding to my list of 'blogs I like to read' list over there on the right hand side. I love scrolling through and discovering new blogs so I will be continuously adding to my list as I remember to...go and have a look, I'm sure you'll like them too.

I might be slow, but -I've noticed the linkwithin 'widget' lately on some of these same blogs and thought it might look good on mine. What do you think? I like it so far. And, it was super easy to do. (Perfect for me). Now you can see little pictures of prior posts at the bottom of the posts.

We've been in our new home for a few weeks, but I've yet to take any (nice) interesting photos so maybe this'll help.

I need to find-among other things- my zoom lens-so I can take pictures of my yard. We have a bird feeder out in the back and, so far, we've seen several types of birds, 2 squirrels a few rabbits and chipmunks have been in it! Almost all at once. I love squirrels- you can probably tell from my fabric stash- but I've decided I really like chipmunks too...Remember the ''Whistle while you work'' scene from Snow White?- that's what it seemed like yesterday :)

The other night we actually had a bat in our living room! How does one successfully remove a bat from ones home? We had them a few times growing up in Europe but they were sleeping upside down on the wall and my Dad-who also lived in the Transylvania area for awhile as a child- was not afraid to remove them by hand(!)

In California we had some birds and one time a few coyotes in our (sub)urban patio. Maybe a possum or 2.

Do you have lots of animals on your yard?

Animals in the yard, hmmm. My brother lives in Durango, Co. The other day he posted a picture looking out his glass door. The bear on his patio was young but it was cute. It was about 5 feet from their glass door. glad I don't live there.
