This is for the bird pics Turtle10 asked for but I invite anyone else with backyard animal pics to post theirs...
Night Heron: He comes around a lot in the summer
Egret: I think this is the same egret in both pics. Our creek dumps into a trout lake in the park behind my house and he hangs out there during the day. I've also seen a Tri colored Heron, a little green heron, and a merlin but I don't have any pics. I'm a bird watcher. :)
Mallards inna snow. I feed them more then I probably should..
Mallard family. The yellow babies will grow up to be Leucistic mallards.
Same two babies all grown up!
Bob the black groundhog (my husband names everything Bob)
