I love my town

.

My neighbors are the helpful sort and with the whiplash weather we’ve been having lately, everyone’s been posting ice charts.

.

Mainers love to test the ice, but knowing your limits is important.

Very lucky indeed. He’s a gorgeous fellow.

A tarp wrapped plywood circle in the woods. But look, it has a porch! What a deal.

I love my town

.

My town’s Facebook page was critter-centric with this week starting with this awesome visitor.

.

We had one on our roof a while back but I wasn’t quick enough to get a photo. They’re such glorious fellows.

I hear that on the zucchini. Everyone is trying to foist them on us lately.

Outhouse shed combo. When you’re working on something and just don’t want to waste the energy it takes to walk back to the house.

Bird brains.

Verreaux’s Eagle Owl

Sleepy owl is not amused.

Wattled Curassow

This poor guy looks like he’s balancing half a walnut on his nose.

Purple Starling

We have starlings, but they’re nowhere as impressive as these.

Palm Cockatoo

.

A beak that could crush cocktail ice in no time flat.

White Naped Cranes

.

I totally want to want to animate that photo to music.

Tawny Frogmouth

.

The little guy looks pissed. Whoever stole his mouse? Give it back…

Northern Bald Ibis

.

Wow. If anyone was ever in dire need of a toupe, it’s that guy.

Common Bay Owl

.

Owls.

They’re da bomb.
