A skunk rumble.

.

Every night at dusk, the skunks show up.

.

.

It’s usually too dark to take pictures through the window, but last week they arrived early.

.

.

And trust me, they really are fun to watch.

.

,

Of course, sometimes….

.

.

They don’t get along.

.

.

And it’s on!

.

.

There’s a lot of squealing….

.

.

A lot of posturing and tail raising..

.

.

But more often than not….

.

.

They settle in and eat side and side.

.

.

No air freshener required.

.

.

And though it’s not riveting footage, here’s a little skunk video for your viewing pleasure.

A duck rumble

.

Our pair of visiting mallards is so cute. The male follows the female around the yard like a lost puppy and sits patiently while she nibbles.

.

.

But then….

.

.

Two rival males arrived.

.

.

He chased them, he flew at them, he put his head down and charged them but nothing worked.

.

.

They just kept moving closer.

.

.

Right after I took this picture he went full ninja duck on their ass and finally drove them off. The Mrs? She was not impressed and simply kept eating.
