Gray Titmouse

A titmouse gathers dog hair from the outdoor carpet on the deck. He makes me smile as he appears to say,let`s just gather all this nesting material at once so I don`t have to make any more trips!
Editing post to link up with Stewart for wild bird Wed.

Rehoming Susie,the death of my parrot,a new puppy/Sat.`s critters

It has been such a long time since I have written. I am going to try & play catch up with Eileen for Sat`s critters,link up here

Susie,the golden I rescued, started becoming more & more dominate with the yard space,proclaiming  that the snow was hers,all hers,biting all of the dogs who were enjoying running & playing in the snow,so that was the end of the rope for me ,so she had to go.I had worked with her a good 6 months or more.It was difficult finding someone to take an 8 year old who didn`t already have a dog.I couldn`t risk sending her to a home with other dogs. Finally, my brother`s pastor was looking for a dog for his little boys,one that was already trained & out of the nipping stage.Susie was perfect for the family.

The last day of March I was shocked to find Elvis dead at the bottom of his cage,still clutching a peanut.He had been with us 35 years & had prior owners,so he was quite old,but I was devestated. No more will we hear,do you wanna drink? wanna apple? I guess he just lived a long life & it was his time to go. I imagine he is on my husband`s shoulder in heaven.

Finally, I am not a german shepard person,but when this puppy became available,I took her,her name is Sonya.She will be 12 weeks at the end of the month. It has been 8 years since I have had a puppy,so it has been challenging. She is a shiloh shepard,long haired.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

These pictures were from Feb.2014 in the midst of a snowstorm. I am not sure which wood warbler this little one is at the feeder.
I have lost all my pictures in my back-up drive, well, let`s just say my brother is trying to get them back,he says there is like 400,000 on there,but I can`t believe that. I wonder if I can get my blog published in a book so I can have alot of them here in my hands,has anyone ever done this?

My granddaughter & I got lost finding the Otterbein farm & on the road we accidently went down we saw these awesome vultures cleaning up a kitty who got hit on the road. I don`t remember seeing the black-faced with white legs,but perhaps they all have white legs,must look it up.

one is not like the others

poor little guy lost his mom
Savannah & I
taking dust baths

just loved all the critters here, & the homemade food was divine.
