Seems the red poles are visiting us again on there way north this year. They didn't the past few years. Someone told us they do "wondering migration" hence you won't see them every year. They consum about 1/3 of that feeder of niger per day.

We have some albino which are really gray squirrels, who come to our feeder. We sometimes have more than one here at a time and yes, they have pink eyes. We've seen them here for 20+ years so those we see today, must be there kits. How could we have so many here?? They seem to do fine. Does anyone else see this?

I'm just guessing it's popped it's head up and is up high on one foot so it looks huge. Kinda comical though, as it looks like a giant compared to the rest.

On my front lawn yesterday. Strange to see only one wandering around. Walked around the side of the house and chased a Doe away. The Doe running was why I went to the window.

These are not the most exciting pictures - but in the Spring the river that runs thru our place is at its best.

It’s called the “Big River”. An overstatement most of the year!

We are still being inundated with red poles here. Seen here on suet. When we look out our windows, they are seemingly everywhere. Then ducks, Mallards wondered through our yard. That was a 1st for us.

Since you guys like our goofy colored squirrels, here is a few more. These are of course all the "gray" variety. This golden one is new to our neighborhood. Yes, they are being closely observed.

These are resident trumpeters we see on a little lake in the UP of MI each summer, so they must nest there.. This is at a NFS campground called Bob Lake. Gee, they are noisy birds!

Out driving through the appropriately-named Paradise Valley in northern Nevada and was surprised to come across a vast area - perhaps a half-mile square - just covered with wildflowers. I was able to see the yellow blush on the green landscape from quite a distance. I was surprised because this spring has been especially dry so very few wildflowers compared to most years.

Why would anyone want a yellow brick road when they could have one paved with yellow wildflowers?

We have tons of termites here, but usually see tunnels?

Carpenter ants got under the bark near a branch on a Poplar here. Branch just slid straight down from the damage. Was about 20 feet long and 8" where it attached. Just missed my shed.

Seen while clearing trails over the weekend in the Ottawa NF in the upper peninsula of MI.
Wolf scat. Lots and lots of hair.

Beavers and porkies chewing on the same trees. Go figure??

A common myth is that "carpenter" ants eat wood...they don't...they remove rotted wood to create hollows for their nests...
