    Well, I was gonna add these to the "winter wildlife" thread - but Spring is definitely here!

    From the backyard this morning....

    There's probably mice in that compost pile. When I turn my pile, my dog is right there waiting to snatch up a tasty morsel. Unfortunately, she keeps the foxes away.

    With openers this weekend it'll be a zoo out there for sure.

    I'll be heading for other smaller back woods waters to hide out from the masses.

    Mule deer routinely wander through/around our property. This guy stopped by outside the shop the other morning to say hi. Rick

    Agreed 100% Id rather see wild animals on the way to work in the morning than brake lights!

    Nothing like the real thing. Nice photos everyone.

    Yes thankfully spring is here.

    We've been feeding ducks & geese for years. What you see here is a daily confrontation where the male goose keeps the ducks away from the food. After about 5 minutes they reach an accommodation, but the goose remains the corn sheriff. And the ducks yield when the female goose wants some corn.

    A pic from the front yard of the cabin (Mississippi river back channel):

    Edit: this area is commonly filled with all sorts of water foul, just not in this pic. Ducks of all flavors, geese, herons and Bald Eagles to name a few.

    ^It's amazing that those fox's are so down with living next to people. Around here fox's are very low profile.

    they are here also - I have seen one for about 10 seconds in the last 4 years...until these!
    Mom just decided to live under the shed for awhile and it happens we have no loose dogs on the street. So I think this is just dumb luck.......probably the only pics and video like that I will ever get!

    Carl the alarm clock and a wild rabbit. We have 3-8 rabbits in the yard every evening and Carl keeps watch ! Pretty relaxing to watch.

    Spotted a moose crossing the on-ramp on the Interstate this morning in Newburgh (that would be Ricky Craven Country for Nascar fans) . . . appeared as though he had crossed the Interstate just a few minutes before. No time to take a pic . . .

    The bigger Fox looks like it has Mange. If it does it needs to be "removed" before it spreads the mange to other Fox.
