I have moved. Completely. After two months of attempting to move in (fixing the house LOL), we finally rented a U Haul truck and hauled the rest of our furnitures and moved. The date was August first.
One week into the new house I find that I miss some of my neighbors from the old “hood”. I will just show you two of them today.
Neighbor 1 is Mr. Squirrel. He’s the head of the family of about 4 or 5. He’s always on the lookout for any handouts I treat my neighbors residing in the oaks behind the house. He can be really stubborn. He once ruined a giant sunflower by climbing on the thin stalk to partake of the nutty delights. We never planted any sunflowers after that summer of disaster. But I miss him. My new hood appears to have some gophers, but not any of Mr. Squirrel’s kin to be seen.
And neighbor number 2 is Jay, Blue Jay. He and his kin appeared to have made some division of treats with the squirrel family as they never get to fight for the seeds I line the fences around the backyard. Both photos are taken from my bedroom as both of my neigbors are a little cautious to get their photos taken by the papparazzi. Oh I miss him and his kin as well.
My new backyard has accorded me lots of moments of happy bird watching, although I could not identify any of them yet. So far, I have seen 3 or 4 types of birds frequent my feeder. But because of the many boxes still waiting to be unpacked I have yet to photograph any of my new neighbors. I will keep you posted next time.
