Several Scarlet Tanagers have been flitting around the trees in our yard over the last week or so. They’ve been so quick that the photo below is the best snapshot I could get. Click here for a post from 2013 that has some better tanager photos.
Yesterday’s post showed a bluebird sunbathing. Today’s post is a photo, taken yesterday afternoon, of a non-venomous water snake curled up in the shade under a rock the edge of a creek in Bent Tree. Only its head was poking out in the sunshine.
This bluebird splayed out in the sunshine for about 15 seconds, then flew away. Click here for a similar post about a blue jay.
This hawk sat on a tree limb, in our backyard, for well over an hour yesterday afternoon. Click here for a post from last summer that also shows a hawk that didn’t seem to mind the rain.
I was able to snap a quick photo of this white squirrel on December 26.
