A Walk On The Wild Side

This week the trail cameras captured a few newcomers.

A blue heron, creek-walking....

Mr. Fox....

And some unknown animal half into the water (hanging on the branch in the foreground)...

The same critter back the next night....

and the next night...


Deer...of course!


Annie!

And not a thirsty bear in sight!

 Bob Schortemeyer and Marcia in CO....you are right....it IS a muskrat!!!

That "other" critter looks like it is possibly a beaver collecting branches for it's home. Maybe even a muskrat ... but looks more like it might be a beaver!! Marcia in CO

The critter looks like a muskrat, depending on the size it could be a beaver. The sure way to tell is if you can see the tail.

Your critter looks like a muskrat, but depending on the size it could be a beaver. Look for the tail, that will tell for sure.

Hi Bev,
Well I'll be! .. I love this blue heron.. I have to say, when he landed in my neighbors yard I was so happy he had come back I ran outside to say hello.
Great post..
blessings,
Penny

Is your muskrat a Suzie or a Sam? (Sorry; couldn't resist .. I immediately thought of this song: Click here: Captain and Tennille Muskrat Love - YouTube :- ) I'll probably be humming it all day!

Love your blog, and I love all of your furry friends! The baby lambs are such a great addition, and are oh! so cute. (So glad that you and your Hubbs kept Grace, too).

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!

What a great assortment of wildlife! I keep thinking I should get one of those trail cams to put out in my pasture.
