If you have kept an eye on the Great Horned Owl cam from my previous post, you will know that both eggs have hatched. The first egg was laid on Jan 1, and the second, three days later... Just like the magic of nature, the first egg hatched on Feb 3 and the second...three days later :) They are adorable looking little creatures fluffed out with natal feathers...
Although we have no snow, my world seems to be populated by black, white and grey things.
Quigley, the grey squirrel, was checking to see if he had successfully chased two black squirrels out of the back yard.
Yes, he had, because one of them was in the front enjoying some bird food ~
A large dog being taken for a walk across the road ~
Happy to see my friendly NeighBaas still keeping each other company :)
But the biggest excitement was noticing more black and white in the adjoining field...
I will try and take some better photos of the black lamb with the white tail... The fuzzy part at the bottom of the photo is the top of the fence.
A bit of colour added to black and white markings was seen on a Spotted Towhee that frequents the front yard. If the light is right, his bright red eyes are rather striking!
Oh..and just so you know what else Quigley has been up to, other than chasing about ... He has very kindly gathered some bird sticks together because he knows that Spring is on its way .... if you don't believe me, I have proof ~
(and a vivid imagination :))
