I live in the center of a medium sized city. I do not live on a farm or out in the wilderness. That is why it is so cool to see so much wild-life coming through our yard.

I wanted to share some pictures of our visitors over the weekend with you. This has been a great year for rabbits…. bunnies are jumpin’ all over the yard this year. I think the hawk was eating mulberries off the ground and munching on a few flying insects.

These visitors are in addition to the regulars; ground hogs, chipmunks, squirrels everywhere, raccoons, possums, owls, wood peckers and other birds.

We also get appearances from coyotes, wild turkeys, and red foxes among others. It is becoming a regular zoo!

Unfortunately, we also had another surprise visit. The building next door has a couple trees that have been dead for a long time. Piece-by-piece the rotten branches have been falling. Last Saturday we had another ‘piece’ fall. This time into our garage.

WE are still alive and did not get hurt. Fortunately, there are only 10 days or so when the Jeep is not in the garage and the tree fell on one of those days!

    Sorry to hear about the garage, but glad everyone is safe! That’s a beautiful hawk…and so many different animals in your yard. Wildlife is amazing! Thanks for sharing! We actually have a family of hawks too. Not to mention a mother rabbit decided to have her babies under our deck, which we never would’ve know if the dog hadn’t sniffed them out.

      Hey there! Thanks. It was the best time for the worst thing to happen, so everyone is fine. They came and cut up the branch and removed the debris Tuesday.
      Amazingly, my daughter lives two houses from us and her neighbor’s tree fell and totaled her car and damaged the steps to her deck! I will have to post pictures of that one too. Take care of the animals and they will take care of you. Good to hear from you again.
