He's Back!

Our Fox Squirrel has returned! We have seen him at the feeders every day this past week. Last year we had one with a very short tail, but we have not seen him this year..... yet.

The Fox Squirrels are welcome at our feeders. They are polite and eat only one seed at a time, do not shake the feeders to empty them and only take what they can eat. The Grey Squirrels??? Not so much.

I love this cute little Tufted Titmouse!

I thought we had lots of House Finches in Colorado - but we may have even more here!!

We have plenty of Bluebirds! I'm sure this is a juvenile. Cute!

This must be the proud Papa.

This Red-tailed Hawk spends his days in the trees beyond our backyard - sitting and looking for dinner....

While we were watching him he flew down onto the golf course. We knew he had something - but what?

When he flew back to his tree we could clearly see the snake in his talons.

Bill says he wants to build an RC squirrel to tease the hawk. Wouldn't that be cool!!??
