I haven't noticed any of the birds in my backyard mating twice in a year.  I've got robins, blue jays, cardinals and sparrows.  They're all fat right now because they feasted on the cicadas. 

Besides the birds, I've got skunks, possums, deer, foxes, ground hogs, racoons, chipmunks and squirrels (black and gray) back there too.  Lots of critters!!

are the ground hogs pigs that dont fly Baz ?  :D

The bluebirds will have two broods if the conditions are right. The first brood will help raise the 2nd. We've watched this at our home when we lived in GA. I've seen what look like tree swallow babies in our fields later in july  after the first hatch. We have a mating pair of eastern (baltimore) orioles in our old cow path. Thats my favorite bird thing this year.
We have tons of critters too. This afternoon I saw a poecupine in our field. We have a herd of 9 deer as there's a new fawn jumping around out there. Groundhogs, red and gray squirrels, occasional moose, hawks ( I caught one with my bare hands in my chicken coop), vultures, least weasel (once),aprox. 100-150 chimney swifts in my chimneys, 3 bears a couple of years ago, turkeys, fischer cats!!! A whole flock of snow buntings spent about 3 weeks withus a few years ago( see second 2 pictures)The list goes on. No roo's though!

Are the weasels still around? Or did you leave them out because you couldn't think of a weasel song? ;)

Around here we call them woodchucks. If you have a garden you call them some other names!

I noticed on your map that you've moved! You were in Buffallo before, right? How do you like the country?!

I didn't really move, I just moved the pin! I wasn't too sure about this map thing when we first got it. On the bird front, the Mama Bird won. She is happily sitting on her nest, in my hanging basket. And yesterday a mourning dove decided the ceiling fan on the porch was a good place to perch. She or he was in and out all morning. I think it liked my music. I swear it was singing along with the ending of "In the Still of the Night" at one point. LOL

Whoa...you're good! I thought of "Pop Goes the Weasel" but I never would have thought of this one. LOL I had to listen to that one part twice but I have to say that I'd like to sic these guys on that ground hog I have out back. Something tells me they'd pay no never mind to the fact that I live in town!

Doc Watson was from North Carolina.  I like this music.  I know nimrod doesn't, but that ain't no matter.   ;D

It's good ol' bluegrass.  Reminds me of The Andy Griffith Show...

Hey Barry
That picture of America (on the you tube) I remembered made me go out and buy a Levi denim jacket when I was 19, its funny the things that come back to you, I remember thinking Dan peek looked so cool, I think they used one from that session on the cover of the Homecoming album.

Kev, we have something in common.  No, I didn't get a denim jacket, but rather this suede jacket in the same cut.  I wanted to look like the cover of Rubber Soul...

No, when they drag Dunkirk Dave outta his hole they call it Groundhog Day.  ;D The kid down the street told me today that if we could get the town cop to come as a witness we could shoot that fat woodchuck with a .22. I almost burst trying not to laugh at that scenario and what it says about our little town!
