This Great Blue Heron has visited our creek a couple of times in the morning, this time I managed to get some good shots w/o spooking him. I take that as a sign the creek is in good health if he's hunting in it. There's a heron rookery in the area not too far from our place, he was probably visiting from there.

I was just looking at our Game Cam pics and saw this animal which is coming by every night. I'm not sure of the ID. Could it be a baby mountain lion? That striped tail doesn't look quite right. Hopefully you can enlarge the pic and see it well enough. Any ideas?

I don't know, Carol. We have a 25 lb dog and that animal is larger than he is. Most domestic cats aren't that large.

I hope this is the right place to post this. I *think* this is a juvenile Brown Snake. He (?) recently shed his skin next to the trash can and that's how we figured out he was under the trash can, but Hubby found him in the backyard the other day shading himself under something I forgot to put in the garage. I think he's kinda cute. *Blush*

It hasn't come by again. We don't have many house cats who survive around here if they are outside. The coyotes and raptors get them.

We have a lot of Hawks, Eagles and Owls and they are all large enough to pick off kitties. :(

It is sad, but there's no excuse for letting cats roam when the dangers are known.

That is true. And there are plenty of other dangers too. Sad

We have a rag doll, he ranges between 29-32!

We have a rag doll that ranges between 29-32 lbs, larger than most of the small dogs in the neighborhood.
