Cookie's Backgarden Thursday


I am out on our deck, just for a few minutes.   I am looking a little crabby, but that's probably because I didn't find any fresh green grass.  Mombean says it is starting to 'green up' especially if we get the predicted rain this weekend.

I thought I would show you our backyard critters, they are always fun to watch. Here is the chipmunk, it loves the corn and nut mix we put out.  Mombean says she knows of at least two burrows where it stashes its horde of seeds.

Next is the male pheasant.  It likes to stand on our big rock and squawk.  Sometimes, he brings his two girlfriends.

One more for your entertainment.   The squirrel - can't forget the squirrel, because it is a permanent fixture in our yard year round.   Here it is invading the "squirrel proof" bird feeder.

Hope all of you find the wildlife as entertaining as I do.   Have a great day!

You have some awesome wildlife to watch, Cookie! We just get squirrels - out here there are no fun pheasants or chipmunks.

Thanks for showing us your critters, Cookie! We like seeing that pheasant. We don't have any of those in our yard.

Wow, you have a lot of funny critters in your Garden!

We don´t have squirrels and Pheasant in our garden. But we can see them on the fields near the house.
Chipmunks lives in our little Zoo in the neighborhood.
We have a blackbirdnest in the garden but the humans says we should better stay away of it.
