Wild Kingdom

Not the moon, but the sun, seen through the smoke haze at about 7pm.

Today we have some video treats from the wildlife camera. It's not lions, tigers and bears, but these are some of our daily visitors.



This is a Towhee. They're very friendly, happy birds. They love to get inside of things. If you open the garage door, they fly right in. They get inside the Jeep when we have the bikini top on it. Funny little birds.

The rock squirrel is what David really wanted to get on film. They're difficult to photograph because they're fast and suspicious. You can see this one watching the camera. We think they have babies because it looks like this one is filling up its jowls with water, to take back to the nest.

This looks like just a bit of Towhee, but if you wait for the 5 second mark and watch the upper right quadrant, you'll see a lizard go by *really* fast.

  1. Boy, that lizard zoomed by so fast I didn't even see it. I must have blinked. :)

  2. He's hard to see - if you walk the slider to the 4 second mark and hit play, watch right about at the level of the bird feeder post.
