Nutkin Watch

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #114. (I missed TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #100, but you should visit!) And I'm also linking to Michelle's Nature Notes (#350).



The sparrows cleared out a dust bath circle for themselves.

By the way, that's an upside-down frisbee I'm using for a bird bath. Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

Nice shots of little Nutkin. Give Theda a hug for me. Looks like this could have been a post for TP's "Cold", as well.

Big furry dog, lying on snowy ground.

Makes me want to put on my mucklucks and go hunt mammoth...

Gotta love Nutkin eating that treat in photo number 1.

That frisbee must be just the right size for small birds to have a bath! Not good for pigeons, though! Like the squirrel.

Maybe I need a frisbee to hold some water. My birds don't ever seem to use mine that is in a shallow dish.

Now I've found a use for my grandkids old frisbees littering the garden. Nice Cardinal.

Clever use for the frisbee. Cute photos, especially of Theda :)

It's like the squirrel doesn't even realize there's a tripod there!

Hannah said...

That must make fascinating entertainment for Theda. I saw interesting seed mixes in the store, laced with cayenne or hot pepper, that burned the squirrels' mouths but were undetectable to the birds. I'm tempted to try that out.

The squirrels do win the backyard wars. Most of the time.
