Shadowy Critters

DSCF0377

I put my trailcam out last night for the first time in a long time. I checked it this morning and we had a mystery cat snooping around at 1:30 in the morning.

I haven’t been able to go hiking in the woods for a while because of all the rain we’ve had so I have been walking around Lafortune Park here in Tulsa a lot. I followed this squirrel down the trail for a 25 yards or so and he finally climbed up this pole and was looking at me chattering and flagging his tail. It was like he was saying “What!!”

Saturday’s Critters, Springtime

It’s the love season for dove. Here’s a couple doing some mixed bathing, almost concealed because the blend in so well with the fence.

Mr. Squirrel gets kind of thirsty also.

And we have another cat roaming the back yard at night.

We have lots of sparrows stopping by.

I love the cardinals.

I was walking at Lafortune Park the other day and saw this goose checking everybody out. As I approached it he started acting restless so I backed off so he could chill down.

Grackles everywhere. I run them off whenever I can.

And a brief kerfuffle between a sparrow and a cardinal.

And I completed another jigsaw puzzle on my ipad. I am really slowwwww on these. But they are fun.

Weekend Critters – Ice, Sleet, and Snow!!

DSCF0317

We’ve had a little weather here. Sleet, freezing rain, and snow. Not too bad, the main thing was that it was cold. We’ve kept our bird feeders going. Cardinals and squirrels are the main customers.

We have several squirrels and they each have distinct feeding styles. I like this dude. No inverted positions for him. He just sits down for dinner and goes for it.

The back yard is cold, the patio got kind of slippery.

We had a blue jay show up for lunch. Sorry for the ugly orange flagging. Our internet provider put it up to mark other utility lines.

I love the female cardinals.

Cardinals and juncos co-existing.

Lizzie the cat checking out the patio action. She doesn’t like outside at all. She is a rescue critter. When she was just a baby kitten somebody drove through a store parking lot and threw her the window.

Abby likes going outside but she burrows under a blanket afterwards.

I finished another jigsaw puzzle. I’m loving doing them on the ipad. I’m not very good at it. My wife just flies through them. We are not racing though, are we?

That’s the critter roundup this week. I’m linking with Eileen’s Saturday’s Critters. Lots of great posts there. Check it out.

I’m also praying in support of Ukraine as they bravely defend themselves from naked aggression by Russia.

Saturday’s Critters – Squirrels and a Cat

Squirrel 02 NIK

Bitterly cold windy day today, this guy was guarding our bird feeder from the hungry birds. What a bully!!

Squirrel 03 NIK

From earlier in the week, I don’t know if its the same one or not but he was calmer.

LJ is chilling out. I don’t know what happened but the vet said he doesn’t need insulin any longer!! Yea!! I wish he’d of told me before I bought a new bottle of the stuff for him.

Saturday’s Critters – Squirrels

I was out walking in Washington Irving Park Thursday and came across this squirrel noisily eating his lunch. He just sat there and watched me and when I finally got a little closer, he decided to move on.

It looks pretty fat.

The day or so before I was on Tulsa’s Turkey Mountain and heard kind of chittering noise and I looked around and saw this squirrel. Eating heartily. I apologize for the terrible quality of the video but I just had my cell phone.

The squirrels out in the woods seem more tolerant than those in our back yard. What’s is up with that? It might be our dogs. They love chasing after the squirrels.

I’m very thankful that I have my health and can take long walks in the woods.

Woodward Park Squirrel

Squirrel - Topaz

One of the many squirrels hanging out at Tulsa’s Woodward Park. He is a little more inquisitive than most of them who when they see you don’t have food lose interest in you. I liked this guys big eyes. I hope that he has got his food cached for the winter because this winter is supposed to be cold.

I used Topaz Labs Impressions to give this photo a painted look.
