@Region Philbis,
That's interesting. And wolves out live dogs. I wonder if that's genetic or environmental

@roger,

looks like it's the other way around -- which would make sense, since domesticated dogs
are cared for, well fed, and not hunted for sport...

@Region Philbis,
Yes. This time, I actually read it correctly and punched in the wrong answer anyway.

I didn't even know these existed till one arrived on our pool fence this morning:

A pheasant coucal - part of the cuckoo family found in Australia and PNG. Carnivorous, ground dwelling and unlike other cuckoos rears its own young.

@hingehead,
Looking remarkably similar to our own New Mexican Roadrunner. I think this is a cuckoo, too.

found a bat in the attic yesterday.

it was curled up under a tarp and couldn't fly.

i coaxed it into a bucket -- it hissed at me! -- and took it outside and set it free...

saw a beaver on my commute home tonight.

first time ever seeing one in the "wild" before...

(that is, if the "wild" includes a grassy knoll off of the mass pike...)

@Region Philbis,
I've seen beavers, deer, and an occasional fox in our riverwalk park, which is moderately wild. Some years you see all of them and other years - nothing.

Some years ago, the rivers and pond had ducklings and goslings everywhere you looked. This year - again nothing. I have no theories.

woodpecker was knock-knock-knockin' on the bedroom window this morning.

knocking back got it to stop, temporarily.

went outside to confirm, it flew away...

Wildlife central in our neighbourhood lately. We've seen coyotes, fox, possums, raccoons, squirrels and skunk on our block in the last couple of weeks. There are deer nearby. Someone got a photo of a buck near the GoTrain tracks last week. The GoTrain is a suburban commuter train. I live in the middle of the city ... but there are nearby ravines. The only thing I haven't seen lately - that I expect to see in the city - is groundhogs.

Close encounter with our neighborhood fox. Let my dog out at 11pm. A usual I go out with him because of the wildlife. I am on our porch at the end watching doggie. He ran it to the left back edge if the yard near the tree line. Now I had theback flood lights on.

I am watching and then glance to my right along comes the fox from the right side of the house with feet of me heading towards me. I yell at him to get out. Fortunately he high tailed it out and just as fortunately doggie didn't see him as he would have raced after him.
