November Wildlife

I always love the visiting wildlife in the yard.  This day started with a rabbit waiting on his breakfast.

One sign of Fall is the arrival of the American White Pelicans.  Every morning they take a long lazy flight.

A very unexpected visitor was this Tersa Sphinx Moth.  I was weeding and when I brought my hand out of the plants, the moth was attached to my glove.

Take a close look at this photo to see the pine cones that were eaten by the squirrels.  The ground was covered with the scales after the seeds were eaten.  The squirrels had quite the feast, as a large area was littered with pine cone remains.

  1. The hawks are here again, thought the bunny was statuary for a minute.

    I’m so fond of your rabbit(s), but the squirrels are great fun, too. The sun’s actually beginning to show here now, and it’s going to be a nice afternoon to be outside. I love Thanksgiving weekend; it’s always a pleasure when the weather’s good.

    • I have a love/hate relationship with the rabbits, but they are so cute and literally wait for me to feed them. I just tolerate squirrels. There are not so many now, as I think they have chased away the young.

  3. Interesting photos. And it’s rare for me to see a rabbit/hare standing on its high legs. Usually they are trying to stand perfectly still, busy munching my veggies and flowers, or running away.

    What a meaty looking rabbit. We get only tiny bunnies and jack rabbits, with nothing in between. Bunnies are too tiny to bother with, and Jack rabbits are simply no good. They come into the garden to dine as if they know I have no interest in them. Even if I wanted to stew them, my aim is very bad.

    what a beautiful November you had there. My 3 acre garden also have rabbits, porcupines, squirrels and many birds. Soon after the winter, I’m going to build a fish pond at the front garden.
