Black Coyote in Bent Tree (2011)

There have been some interesting threads, on Nextdoor, about possible black wolf sightings in Bent Tree.  I’ve posted this before…the following photo of a black coyote was taken in our yard, by a trail camera, in 2011.  About a week before that, I saw a black coyote crossing the road one evening.  This particular critter was pretty good-sized, a coyote, and very cool to see.

644 and counting

Click here for a previous post about the NextDoor social network for Bent Tree.  At the time of that post (January 2017), there were about 200 Bent Tree “neighbors” registered.  Yesterday evening, I noticed the count was up to 644 neighbors.  Just FYI, you can change the settings under your NextDoor profile to unsubscribe from all NextDoor emails, and still read/write posts on the Bent Tree NextDoor site.  It would drive me crazy to receive an email every time someone posted on there.  It’s a lively forum!

Turkeys Roosting

Four adult turkeys and countless poults put on a show yesterday. The first photo below shows one of the adults roosting in a tree with eight poults tucked under her wings.  The second photo shows the poults on the limb after the hen flew away to another tree.  One by one, the poults flew to join her at the other tree.

An Intriguing House

I was all set to post about a golf course home that recently came on the market, when I got sidetracked by a different new listing. I was intrigued by the photos of the home at 172 Little Hendricks Mountain Road. Then I read the description under “property details”.  The description was intriguing, too. The last line of the description reads “Many delightful rooms reminiscent of the Professors home in Lion, Witch, & the Wardrobe.”

Click here to link to the listing information.  The asking price for the 5 bed, 4 bath home is $298,700.  If you’re interested in a golf course home, click here to list to the listing information for the home I originally had in mind.  The asking price for 6 Tamarack Drive is $400,000.

Things are Squirrely Around Here

The main presentation at today’s Lake and Wildlife Partners meeting (9:30 at Club Tamarack Rec Room) will be about “Bent Tree Squirrels”.  There will also be a short presentation on “the Administrative Building Project”.   Lake and Wildlife Partner meetings are open to Bent Tree property owners and residents.  Coffee and doughnuts are available at 9:00, before the meeting.

The photos below are some of the squirrel pictures that have been posted on this website over the years.  The photo above is of a squirrel that was literally bouncing off our windows a few years ago, shortly after it ate a bunch of mistletoe berries from a Christmas decoration.  Watching squirrels in Bent Tree made me think it might be fun to be a squirrelologist.  Then I wondered if that was even a thing.  It is…click here for an article on “a leading squirreologist”.
