This little wren loves living here, and has built nests every year in a box full of tools, or in between two flower pots next to a door, in between my broom and walking sticks, you name it.

It bounces and hops around the patio bobbing it’s body up and down making a “chip chip chip” call, exploring the furniture, and whatever else is sitting around outside. It’s pretty loud for a small bird (which is probably why I often notice when it’s around calling for attention) but the bobbing up and down cuteness factor really can’t be beat.

Lacking a good sense of smell, these smaller vultures soar higher than Turkey Vultures (who do have good sniffers) to keep an eye on where they're going and hopefully follow them to carcasses.

Great Horned Owl

Crows harass hawks, but they specifically will harass Great Horned Owls - for hours on end, as this owl is a crow's most dangerous predator.

Carolina Chickadee

Another bird that is all gussied up and ready for a night on the town (and is also TOO cute!)
