I posted a thread yesterday asking some folks to help me identify a hawk that had come into my yard. It got some good response and also got me thinking.
I live outside of the city in Okeechobee Florida and I have quite a bit of wildlife that comes into my yard. While they aren't exactly My pets, I do love all of them and they bring me as much comfort to see them daily as much as my beloved cat.

So, I thought this might be a good place to share photos of what you may have taken of the wildlife around your areas. I know Id love to see what others get visiting them too. A lot of people that live in the big cities don't get the blessings we do being up this close to nature, and since there are members here from all over the world, we might see some very unusual or interesting photos.

All I ask is that you post photos that you have taken, be it in your yard or neighborhood, or even from trips you may have been on and to identify what it is, lol unless of course it is obvious like a rabbit or chicken or something!

Hope you like this idea, and I hope to see lots of pictures! I posted these two new ones on the other thread, but I will post them here as well to get this started.

Enjoy

Beautiful birds! This is a curved-bill thrasher whose bill got out of hand...



And a nest of the same kind of bird. It's in the middle of a huge cholla cactus, so very protected.

Wow, how did its bill end up like that? I mean is it suppose to be like that? Amazing it has survived. I guess animals adapt as we do, but still, very curious as to how it ended up like that.
Nice pictures either way.

Their bills are naturally curved, but not like that. My guess is that this one had a genetic fault that caused it to keep growing. It was in our feeder one day and it was actually managing to pick up seeds and eat them just fine. So, my guess is that he found a way to adapt.

Those are some excellent shots you have. Good to know the bear does... lol thanks for the update on that! A hummingbird feeder is next on my list. I have a good acre that is just a blank slate waiting for a garden to be planted. I intend on have many hummingbird, butterfly plant friendly flowers in the near future.

I have tons of squirrels that have taken over my feeders, but woodpeckers, cardinals, and blue jays manage to get their fill as well. The squirrels are quite the characters though aren't they?

Are you located in the great out west or were those bucks and bears from a trip you may have taken?

Thank you for my "message" too btw...

Lol you can never go wrong with bunnies! We actually found two babies the momma had made a hole for in the yard a couple weeks ago. Hard to tell by the picture because I didn't want to move them, but there are two in the photo. She has moved them since

What a great picture and some awesome magic to go with it! Any idea what kind of owl it is? I stepped outside on the deck one night for a smoke and a owl with a huge wingspan flew right over my head. I actually ducked. Was very cool and gave me goosebumps!

That's cool, Ive never actually seen a roadrunner besides the cartoon! Did it eat from the feeder too? Apparently the bats do, Never knew that.


So many awesome pictures going up here now, I love it. Glad you folks are sharing such beauty with us all.
