Baby Robin & Squirrel Acrobat

This morning I saw my first baby robin.  They are so cute! Every year, I find robin’s eggs in my yard and keep them until I find a new one the next year.  It’s my little tradition.  We moved here in 2009 and I’ve been doing that ever since.  We have all kinds of baby…

Curious Crab

I love the ghost crabs along the beach. There are really small ones, then there are the big ones.  They are so cute.  I love watching them come out of their burrows then when a bird flies over, they scurry back inside.  They usually run away from people too, but this curious one in the…

Oystercatchers

Stick Caterpillar

This is a stick caterpillar that’s been hanging out on the obedient plant for several days.  It’s one of the coolest insects I’ve seen in my garden yet!  I wonder if this is a host plant they commonly feed on?! This is the kind of awesomeness we get to see since we don’t use pesticides. …

Squirrels & Wrens

Our squirrel friends are enjoying the seeds on the ground around the feeder.🐿️ I saw 5 at one time. Carolina wrens are nesting in the tree next to our house.🐦 They come back every year. I was sitting nearby earlier and heard the baby birds.
